Demi Lovato Promoted Self-Love By Showing Off Her Stretch Marks
Now this is how you kick off the weekend right.
Demi Lovato, who has been candid about her past struggles with body image and eating disorders, posted several body-positive videos on her Instagram Story on Friday that showed her pinching her bare tummy, shaking her hips, and putting her stretch marks on display positively.
“Stretch marks and extra fat and yet I still love myself,” she captioned the clip of herself pulling the skin on her stomach as she laid on a bed in gray shorts and a knotted black top.
The “Cool for the Summer” songstress followed that up with a shot of herself rocking the same laid-back ensemble as she wiggled her butt in the mirror of her walk in closet. “CELLULITE and yet I still love myself,” she wrote on it.
Then, she took things a step further when her cellulite wasn’t that visible in the shot. “The boomerang smoothed out my legs,” she wrote in a separate post. “The point is, I have cellulite just like the other 93% of women do. What you see on Instagram isn’t always what it seems to be. Let’s embrace our real selves. #iloveme.”
Lovato went on to post one last video, which showed her standing with her hand on her hip. “No thigh gap for me and yet I still love myself," she captioned it.
This is just the latest time she has sent fans a body-positive message. Earlier this year, she shared a photo of herself standing in a bathing suit on a beach and dished on why she felt “insecure” about the snap.
“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 captioned it. “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”
