Demi Lovato revealed new details about her recent weight loss on Instagram. The 24-year-old singer-songwriter recently shared an update on her weight loss journey, revealing she has lost 14 pounds and gone through several inches of fat. Lovato revealed she now wears size 6 clothing and is very happy with her new figure. She also shared some fun snapshots of herself during her weight loss journey.
The Beginning Of Her Weight Loss Journey
Lovato began her weight loss journey in January 2019. She shared a series of weight loss motivation and inspiration posts on Instagram to kick-start her diet. In one of these posts, Lovato said she had hit rock bottom and had to make a change. The singer-songwriter said she had tried to take her health and weight issues into her own hands by drastically changing her diet and exercising. She attributed her recent weight loss to these changes. “Since January, I’ve been working hard to reclaim my health and my body. I’ve been following a strict diet and taking on lots of yoga and workout sessions. I’ve also been trying out new things like cooking my own meals and avoiding processed foods. I’m very happy with how things are going and feel better than I’ve felt in a long time,” she wrote in the caption of one of these posts.
The Main Reasons For Her Weight Loss
Lovato revealed the main reasons for her weight loss on Instagram. She claimed her unhealthy behaviors, such as consuming fast food and having junk food day-to-night, had caused her to gain weight. The singer blamed her “toxic lifestyle” for her expanding waistline. She also admitted her emotional state had made a big difference to her weight. “I wasn’t happy with how I looked, and I definitely wasn’t eating healthy. That’s all it took for me to blow up. I started seeing my reflection more in the mirror and started comparing myself to other girls. Looking back, I realize how much that affected me. I love myself more than anything now, and I make sure everyone around me knows it,” she wrote. She also credited her parents for raising her in a way that made her feel empowered and accepted. “My parents always had my back when I needed them and showed me love and acceptance no matter what. I never felt like I couldn’t talk to them about my problems. They were there for me when I needed them the most, and that meant a lot,” she wrote. “I don’t know what I would have done without them. They’re the best parents anyone could ask for. I love them so much.”
The Progress She Has Made In Losing Weight
Lovato’s weight loss journey was documented on her Instagram account. She shared a series of updates with fans to keep them posted on her progress. In one of these posts, she showed off her slightly curved stomach, claiming she had lost 2 inches from her waistline. “It feels amazing. I never thought I would be able to fit into a size 6 dress. I wore a size 12 when I was 14, and it’s been years since I’ve been able to fit into a size 6. It really is amazing,” she wrote in the caption of the post. The singer also showed off her improved stamina in another post, where she claimed she could now jog for 30 minutes without getting tired. In another post, she revealed she had lost 6 pounds and was still maintaining her fitness routine. “6 pounds since January. I’ve stuck to my guns and continued to eat healthy and work out. I’ve also been doing a lot of zen breathing and relaxation exercises which have helped too. I’m very happy with how things are going and am looking forward to seeing the final result,” she wrote in the caption of this post.
The Influences That Helped Her Lose Weight
Lovato revealed the influences that helped her lose weight on Instagram. She claimed that one of the major factors was a strict diet and avoiding certain foods. The singer also credited celebrity nutritionist Jessica Alba for helping her lose weight and keep it off. “I’ve been eating mostly plants and organic food. The majority of my diet comes from vegetables and fruit. I try to stay away from any processed food, refined sugar, and unhealthy fats. In addition to that, I’ve been taking my vitamins daily, eating lots of green vegetables, and drinking plenty of water. Working with Jessica Alba has been amazing. She changed the way I look at food and made me realize that I shouldn’t be afraid to eat healthy,” she wrote in the caption of a photo with Alba.
Alba helped Lovato develop a food and fitness plan that worked for her. The celebrity nutritionist gave the singer some tips on how to curb her appetite and how to make healthier choices when eating out. She also advised the singer to avoid eating breakfast out of fear it would make her fat. “Learn to love yourself and listen to your body. Above all, have fun. You’re on a weight loss journey, and that’s something to celebrate! You’re doing something that puts a smile on your face, and that’s all that matters,” Alba wrote in the caption of a photo with Lovato.
New Challenges And Tricky Situations
The 24-year-old singer has also faced a number of tough challenges and emotional moments along the way. She shared a few of these on Instagram to demonstrate how she had gotten through them. In one of these posts, she revealed she was battling depression and anxiety. As a result of these issues, she had gained a lot of weight. “Last year was a really hard year for me. I reached a point where I felt like I couldn’t breathe. I tried to kill myself. This was a very dark time for me. I had a lot of anxiety and felt like I couldn’t escape it. I think I gained a little weight as a result of all this. I wasn’t eating healthy and didn’t feel like myself. Ever since then, I’ve been working hard to get back my health and feel better. I still have moments of anxiety and depression, but I learn to cope better and let myself feel those feelings. I try to keep a positive attitude and always look on the brighter side. This is a new challenge and something I’ve never had to deal with before, but I’m glad I’m here and feeling more comfortable in my own skin,” she wrote in the caption of this post.
How She Plans To Keep The Weight Off
Lovato admitted that keeping the weight off would be tough, but she was confident she would succeed. She shared plans for keeping the weight off on Instagram. In one of the posts, she showed off her slightly curved stomach and attributed her weight loss to her healthy diet and daily workouts. “It’s been almost a year since I’ve been able to fit into a size 6 dress. I’ve lost 14 pounds and gone through several inches of fat. I now wear a size 6 and feel great. I want to keep this up and be able to fit into my favorite clothing again. I worked hard to get here, and I know it’s not easy to maintain, but I’m confident I’ll be able to do it. I’m eating healthy, doing my workouts, and monitoring my portions. I love myself more now than ever, and I make sure everyone around me knows it. I feel better than I’ve ever felt, and I’m loving every bit of it. I plan on keeping this up for the rest of my life. What a ride it’s been. I couldn’t have imagined how much this would change my life for the better. I’m so grateful to be on this journey and looking forward to seeing the results. I love you guys.”
Lovato concluded by thanking her fans for sticking with her and believing in her ability to change. She also encouraged fans to continue supporting her as she made her way back to her “old self.” “You guys mean the world to me, and I’m so grateful for all your love and support. I couldn’t do any of this alone, and I promise I’ll never forget the people (especially you guys) who’ve helped me along this process. Together, we’re changing lives. I love you guys,” she wrote. In keeping with her new, healthier lifestyle, Lovato has also altered the lyrics to her hit song “Sorry” to reflect her new outlook. The song’s original lyrics read: “Tell me something I don’t know / Change is hard, I know, but I’m trying / Sometimes I feel too scared to let myself go / And I just want to fit in with the crowd.” Now, the song’s lyrics reference her journey to self-acceptance, saying: “I’m learning to love myself and be happy with who I am.”
