Demi Lovato loves herself. The singer, who sings “What’s wrong with being confident” in her hit “Confident,” is here to remind women to celebrate and love the skin we’re in.
In a recent post to her Instagram page, Lovato celebrated conquering disordered eating.

On Tuesday, the singer posted a picture of herself showing off her bare thighs with an image (that has since been deleted) and a caption that read: “These are what I call no more dieting thighs and I’m proud of them,” she wrote, adding “#thickthighssavelives.”
Fans were quick to support and thank the Grammy nominee for the post.
Thousands of the post’s comments praised Lovato for celebrating her beauty and body. “You have every reason to love them and to love yourself,” one fan replied. “I’m so proud of you Demi.”
Lovato has been open about her challenge with loving her body, specifically her thighs, in the past.
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. 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
Last year, the songstress opened up about her eating disorder and body image issues in a documentary called “Simply Complicated.” The movie about her life revealed the star’s struggles with bipolar disorder as well. But the trajectory of Lovato’s effort to embrace and celebrate her body has also been well-documented by the singer on Instagram for some time.
In a fairly recent photo published to her account, Lovato sported a swimsuit and talked about how making the decision to show off her thighs was difficult for her at first.
“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,” Lovato wrote before explaining her challenges with getting her health on track. “I work every day towards solid recovery even if I mess up sometimes.”
