Demi Lovato Reflects On Past Unhappiness

Last year, Demi Lovato spoke candidly to Access about her eating disorder and her past drug use. Now, Demi, feeling comfortable with her healthy body, takes a look back at just how unhappy she was.

Happy Meals just 2.99 I was unhappy with my body. I went to completely starving myself. Sat down with demi loefb atto and her mom where demi talked candidly about her eating disorder and her past drug use. We sat down with her for a new interview. Now she's able to look back and see just how unhappy she was in the past. Everyone's looking at you. And there's a lot of comparing going on. So there's that element of insecurity when I go to an awards show. Uh-oh, I've got to look this way on the red carpet and the makeup has to be perfect and this and that. Safe to say demi delivered on Sunday's red carpet with that stunning red gown. A sign she's come to be very comfortable on her skin. She showed off her VMA looks over the years including one focusing on her red carpet arrival at the 2008 show posting in part, quote, I remember asking for spanx to flatten my stomach because I used 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. Yes, I was at the VMAs when I was 16 and I was having an incredible time but at the same time I was miserable. I look back at that and thing, you know what, I may have been thinner then, but I'm so happy that I'm healthy today. And I have curves which are a lot sexier than what I was aiming for which was -- now I think curves are beautiful. Made beautiful demi feels in part because of the popularity of voluptuous women including Kim Kardashian who have all helped redefine what beautiful is. You look at J. Lo, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, beyonce, who I don't really consider human, she's more like a goddess. She had had a huge impact on that. You can think whatever you want about the kardashians but they did help tons the of women feel comfortable within their own skin. Demi had no problem showing off her look in a playful way posing for sneakers skechers footwear. So nice not having to wear heels. It's just a comfortable shoe, and I love that. A shoe which will be part of her wardrobe when she hits her world tour November 6h. Going to a tour, you work, work, work. It's crazy the week before because you're trying to get everything in. Personal life like therapy sessions, stuff like that that you can't do on the road. One thing she's determined to keep doing is training to stay fit. It's hard. It's very hard to continue to have a healthy exercise routine while you're performing every night an hour and a half of like cardio, basically. But I make time to fit it in and I feel great. Demi looks fantastic. And she told us she's training like a pro athlete and very mindful of what she eats. Good to see her happy, thank you, SHAWN.
