The singer has long been an outspoken advocate for body positivity.
The 25-year-old singer, who has long been an outspoken advocate for body positivity, shared a series of posts on her Instagram Story on Thursday dedicated to how much she loves her curves.
Posting a video of herself grabbing onto her excess stomach skin, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer wrote, “stretch marks and extra fat..and yet I still love myself.”
She also shared a video of herself bouncing her booty back in forth while wearing underwear alongside a similar message: “Cellulite and yet I still love myself.”
But there was something about the video that rubbed Lovato the wrong way: it made her legs look smoother than they really are.
“The boomerang smoothed out my legs,” she wrote in a separate post. “I have cellulite just like the other 93 percent of women do.”
“What you see on Instagram isnt always what it seems to be. Lets embrace our real selves. #iloveme,” she continued.
The 25-year-old also shared a photo of her strong physique in a pair of workout shorts and a tied-up top that exposed her midriff.
“No thigh gap for me and yet I still love myself,” she wrote alongside the selfie.
As somebody who has previously checked into rehab twice for substance abuse and bulimia, Lovato also hasnt been shy about criticizing societys obsession with dieting.
“Its so frustrating and sad how strong the #dietculture in our society is,” Lovato wrote on social media last month. “Its constantly telling us were not thin enough no matter what.”
“You are beautiful no matter what anyone says,” she continued.
Lovato also opened up to PEOPLE in February about how much happier shes felt since deciding to give up on dieting.
“I stopped dieting and have gained a little weight so its been a struggle, but at the same time, Im happier because Im not restricting myself from certain foods and Im no longer food shaming myself,” Lovato explained.
“As someone recovering from a food disorder, its something that I want to put out there that you dont have to diet in order to be happy,” Lovato added. “I dont think Ive heard that message out there in the public and of course, its important to be healthy and everything in moderation is fine.”
