It is no secret that there is a lot of pressure on women in the entertainment industry to always look there best and it is often expected that these stars should be slim and beautiful. This pressure can really get to some stars who can take hurtful comments to heart, leading to them no longer feeling happy and confident in their body.
It seems that this is exactly what happened with the talented and beautiful singer Demi Lovato, who has been fairly open about her battle with her weight over the years. Now, Demi has posted a picture of herself from four different occasions, reflecting on her weight fluctuation due to her lack of confidence in her body.
Lovato explained, "I remember the day I wore the dress in the very first picture. I remember asking for spanx to flatten my stomach because I use to feel so heavy and ‘fat’. Now looking at this picture, you can clearly see my hip bones. It makes me sad because I wasted so many years ashamed of my body when I could've been living the happy and healthy life I live today."
As well as looking back and reflecting on her weight fluctuation and not being happy with her body in her younger years, Demi Lovato also made a point of praising those who have been there for her. Demi thanked her fans, her, friends, and her family for all being there for her over the years.
Lovato added, "Fortunately looking at the picture of myself in the red dress yesterday, I not only feel so grateful for the love and support I've had from fans, friends and family, but... I also feel.. beautiful. I’m so excited to live my life the way I deserve to and to the complete fullest."
