Along with the series of photographs that she posted, she captioned the post on some reflections of her recovery journey.

"I used to genuinely believe recovery from an eating disorder wasn't real. That everyone was faking or secretly relapsing behind closed doors. 'Surely she throws up here and there', 'she can't POSSIBLY accept her cellulite'...those were just a few of the things that I used to tell myself growing up."

Lovato's caption reads.

"I'm so grateful that I can honestly say for the first time in my life - my dietitian looked at me and said 'This is what eating disorder recovery looks like"
