Demi Lovato shared a new photo of herself looking pretty darn hot in her bikini. The 'Heart Attack' singer, who was recently in the hospital for a lung infection, is known for spreading self-love messages. The one she shares along with this new photo is an important one, and one she was a long time accepting. Demi Lovato suffered for quite some time from bulimia, and had a relapse of the eating disorder this past summer. Fortunately she sought treatment right away, and is in a much better place both mentally and physically now.

Wilmer Valderrama must be an awfully proud man. Not only is he an actor with a gorgeous girlfriend, he has also witnessed the transformation Demi Lovato has made in the past few years with regard to loving herself.

"Regardless of what society tells you these days …You don’t have to have a thigh gap to be beautiful. It is possible to love your body the way it is #fitness #health #acceptance #selflove," she captioned her sexy bikini shot.

Demi Lovato made a New Year's resolution at the start of 2015--to take even better care of her health. She urged others to join her on her journey.

"It's all about loving and taking care of the only body you will ever have... Cherish it, love it, embrace it.. Because when you do.. It begins to show," she wrote on Instagram in January. "Goodbye 2014.. Who's excited for what we can accomplish in 2015?!! Let's do this!!!!" she captioned yet another Instagram photo at the time.

Demi Lovato is proof positive that women don't need anything as ridiculous as a thigh gap (the space between one's thighs where they don't touch one another) to prove that they're beautiful. Beauty comes from a place of confidence that is achieved by being your best self and loving yourself, flaws and all.

Demi Lovato sets a fine example for women everywhere, both young and old. Don't you think she looks healthy and beautiful in her new bikini shot?
