Demi Lovato Celebrates Her New Curves After Letting Go of "Eating Issues"
"Fun fact: I never had boobs until I started eating what I wanted."
Demi Lovato is opening up about recovering from her eating disorder, and revealed the positive body change that resulted from her giving up control over what she ate.
On Friday, the singer celebrated her new curves on Instagram. "Fun fact: I never had boobs until I started eating what I wanted. My whole life I hated my small tittaayyys and then when I finally let go of my eating issues, I GOT THE BOOBS I WANTED!!!" she shared alongside a photo of herself wearing a nude body suit and no bra, as well as another snap showing off her cleavage.
Demi assured fans that what they saw in pictures was not the work of a "push-up bra or boob job." "IT’S ALL ME!!" she proudly exclaimed, adding that she's come to terms with her body's natural fluctuations. "And you know what, they’re gonna change too!!! AND I’LL BE OKAY WITH THAT AS WELL!! But let this be a lesson y’all.. our bodies will do what they are SUPPOSED to when we let go of trying to control what it does for us. Oh the irony."
She then encouraged her followers to share their own stories about "making peace" with their eating issues in the comments section.
In February, Lovato detailed her recovery from her years-long eating disorder during an appearance on Ashley Graham's Pretty Big Deal podcast, admitting that the pressure she felt to be thin contributed to her 2018 drug overdose.
"When you have certain people around you that are telling you certain things, that you should look a certain way, it makes it harder. So I was in that situation — I was just running myself into the ground, and I honestly think that's kind of what led to everything happening over the past year," she said, adding: "It was just me thinking I found recovery when I didn't and then living this kind of lie, and trying to tell the world that I was happy with myself when I really wasn't."
Demi continued, “Someone needs to stand up for people who don’t naturally look that way. Like I had to work my ass off every day at the gym six days a week to maintain that figure, and it’s just like, that led me only one way, and I don’t want to go down that path again. So I’m not willing to destroy my mental health to look a certain way anymore.”
