Demi Lovato: I've Gained 30 Pounds Since Rehab — Who Cares?

Fri, September 23, 2011 3:49pm EDT by 60 Comments

Demi Lovato admitted in a recent interview she’s put on weight since getting treatment last winter, but it’s worth it since she’s in a happier and healthier place. Don’t you agree?

When Demi Lovato admitted herself into treatment in Chicago last year, she was skipping meals, purging when she ate and mutilating herself. Now, healthier and happier, the 19-year-old performer says she’s put on 30 pounds — but she’s embracing her new found curves and staying about from the small screen.

“I just felt that being on camera for my first job wasn’t the smartest decision,” Demi told Amy Kaufman of the LA Times during a recent interview about her new album, Unbroken. “On TV, you have wardrobe fittings, you have four cameras on you at all times, and you’re worried about your angles and your lighting and your shots.”

When Demi was struggling with her eating disorder, she’d become a master at skipping meals…and no one noticed.

“I had learned how to control and manipulate everyone around me into believing that I was OK,” she explained. “I’d go to work on my TV show and, instead of getting lunch, I would go get my nails done or go tan or nap or something…No one was grilling me.”

Now things have changed in Demi’s life. She said in her interview she checks in with an adult after every meal to ensure her nutrition is on track, which has led to her gaining weight.

We think Demi’s curves fit her perfectly. She’s an inspiration to girls and women everywhere, who look to Hollywood stars to set standards of beauty. Keep up the great work, Demi! You’re an inspiration!

It’s so hard to believe she had an eating disorder…I mean, she looked so healthy even before!
And It doesn’t even look like she gained a whole lot of weight, she prolly just gained muscle :]
I love her! <3

Demi Lovato is a beautiful woman in every possible way. Who gives a crap if she gained 30 pounds?!? Demi is even more gorgeous now than ever before! She is a great role model for all types of people, both for her mental resolve and her self-confidence. I (a 26 year old straight male) have drawn strength from Ms. Lovato, helping me through a tough time (about the same time she was in rehab), helping me to ‘stay strong” myself. All of the haters should really focus their attention elsewhere, toward someone or something that merits their ire. Demi Lovato most certainly deserves nothing but the best.

I think it’s better to be curvy but not very curvy!Now when I see Demi on magazines and Tv I think she is a bit fat…:/

calling a person recovering from an eating disorder “a bit fat” is definitely not the best idea. Especially if they’re not.

She has been an inspiration to me and a lot of other young girls dealing with these kinds of issues. I just noticed something about the picture though. Look at Demi on the left, she doesn’t look very happy and she’s practically hiding. When she’s on the right, which is after treatment, she looks happy, healthy, proud, and beautiful!! Demi Lovato is such an amazing person inside and out! <3

I’m not a big fan of demi but she looks amazing. When I first seen her with her weight gain I thought she was beautiful and brave. She encourages me to love myself at all times.

She looks healthier now, more real and less… like the rest of those Disney stars (Raven Simone excluded) who think that they need to be skinny.

Demi is such an inspiration! She should have never felt ashamed of her body, every person is unique and beautiful in their own way. Demi, to be truthful, you look more pretty than a shapeless, scary, skinny person. GO DEMI! KEEP BEING YOURSELF!!!
