Demi Lovato recently shared a photo of her toned abs after months of working hard at the gym.

On her Instagram account, the singer said that she doesn’t normally share photos of her stomach since it’s one of her biggest insecurities. But after exercising regularly and eating healthy, she has seen some progress. Lovato also gave her trainers a shoutout for all the help and support they have given her.

Throughout the past couple of months, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer has been posting photos and videos of herself working out. In one of her clips, Lovato revealed that she’s been boxing.

In the past, Lovato admitted to suffering from drug addiction and an eating disorder. While speaking with American Way, the actress said that it was difficult not to develop an eating disorder, since she grew up around someone who had similar issues. At the age of 7, Lovato joined beauty pageants, and this just made her body image issues even worse. “My body-image awareness started way before that, but I do attribute a little of my insecurities to being on stage and judged for my beauty,” she said.

At the age of 9, Lovato started binge eating. At 12, she started purging and cutting her arms after comparing herself to the skinny models she would normally see in magazines, according to People. “When I was gaining weight because I was becoming a woman, I would look at those images and say to myself, ‘Wait, this is not what I look like. I’m getting fat the hips and on my butt.’ I lived fast and I was going to die young. I didn’t think I would make it to 21,” she said.

At the age of 18, Lovato checked into a rehab facility to deal with her eating disorder, drug addiction and cutting. At present, Lovato has become more proud of the way she looks, but admitted that she is also worried about passing on her bulimia to her children in the future. “My grandma had bulimia, my mom had it, I had it, and hopefully my kids won’t have it. But it’s kind of like addiction. It’s hereditary,” she said.
