Demi Lovato posted an inspiring message about self-acceptance and her eating disorder on Instagram. Demi’s refreshing post specified that her goal for this year is to change nothing about her body. She wrote:
“So, I’m insecure about my legs in this picture but I’m posting it because I look so happy and this year I’ve decided I’m letting go of my perfectionism and embracing freedom from self criticism.” She continued, “Learning to love my body the way it is is challenging but life changing. Giving up my eating disorder has been the most challenging journey of my life but I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes. Today I’m feeling strong. You all can do it too. It IS possible. Thank you God for this new chapter in my life. #EDrecovery #happyAF.”
Demi has opened up to her fans about her eating disorders before, most especially in her documentary, Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, which aired on YouTube in October 2016. In the doc she discussed other struggles that she has gone through in the past few years including her Bipolar diagnosis and cocaine addiction. For more information about the documentary, click here.
