2014 was a huge year for Demi Lovato, and she’s looking to keep it up in the New Year! The singer, who’s previously suffered from an eating disorder, took to Instagram to reflect on her last several months, specifically her newfound confidence in her body image.
With a before and after shot revealing her recent weight loss, the 22-year-old wrote, “I was beautiful then, and I’m beautiful now. 2014 I decided to focus on bettering myself by making changes in my life with health, balance, endurance and consistency. You don’t have to wait till the beginning of a new year to make resolutions for yourself. It’s all about loving and taking care of the only body you will ever have… Cherish it, love it, embrace it.. Because when you do.. It begins to show.”
Among other personal issues, Demi went to rehab for her bulimia in 2010, and recently admitted she almost had to return in 2013. “I was done being afraid of food and so tired of overeating and not knowing why I was doing it,” she explained, of overcoming that situation with help from her bofyriend, Wilmer Valderrama. “Now I’m on a structured meal plan. I eat four meals and two snacks a day. It’s teaching me portion control.”
Earlier in 2014, the “Nightingale” singer revealed her new love for working out and staying healthy. “Getting fit is my new hobby!” she gushed in June. “And I love it!”
