Demi Lovato can't say she's 100 percent "stoked" in her own skin — but she definitely didn't find happiness by falling in line with every restrictive diet du jour either. And she's now doing her damndest to promote her own hard-learned lessons about at least striving for body positivity instead of weight loss under immense pressure.
Posting a bikini photo that shows off her cellulite, she noted she was pushing through her fear to show her real bathing suit body, without airbrushing — and at a time in her life when she's not obsessed with Hollywood's latest diet.
"It’s such a great feeling to be back in tv/film while not stressing myself with a strenuous workout schedule before 14 hour days, or depriving myself from a real birthday cake rather than opting for watermelon & whip cream with candles because I was terrified of REAL cake and was miserable on some crazy diet s---," she wrote. " Anyway, here’s me, RAW, REAL! And I love me. And you should love you too! Now back to the studio.. I’m working on an anthem.. also. Just so everyone’s clear.. I’m not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that’s the best I can do. I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too."
