That said, as many otherfemalecelebs have touched upon before (including Lovato herself), more often than not, women are conditioned to hate their bodies and dread any form of a poolside pic. However, as Lovato explained in her caption, she's "literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body."
"Guess what, it's CELLULIT!!!!" she continued, before admitting that while she did edit her other bikini pics, she "hates" that she did that and thought it was important to be upfront about it.
She then went on to talk about how done she is with trying to make herself look like other people's "idea of what beautiful is," and that, moving forward, she's all about being authentically "who I am rather than trying to meet someone else's standards."
"So here's me, unashamed, unafraid and proud to own a body that has fought through so much and will continue to amaze me when I hopefully give birth one day," Lovato said, later adding that she loves herself and that, "you should love you too!"
That said, before signing off, Lovato also wanted to make one thing clear.
"I'm not stoked on my appearance BUT I am appreciative of it and sometimes that's the best I can do," she concluded alongside the hashtag #NationalCelluliteDay. "I hope to inspire someone to appreciate their body today too."
