Demi Lovato has embraced her body – and wants her fans to do the same.

The singer, 22, posted a before-and-after photo on Instagram showing her weight loss over the past year.

“I was beautiful then, and I’m beautiful now,” she wrote. “2014 I decided to focus on bettering myself by making changes in my life with health, balance, endurance and consistency.”

Lovato has struggled with eating disorders, entering treatment for bulimia in 2010 and admitting to a relapse this summer.

But the former Disney star seems to be doing much better when it comes to her self-image, saying in Allure‘s January issue: “I love my butt.”

She’s now encouraging her fans to also live a healthy lifestyle and love their bodies in 2015.

“You don’t have to wait till the beginning of a new year to make resolutions for yourself,” she says in her Instagram post. “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. Goodbye 2014.. Who’s excited for what we can accomplish in 2015?!! Let’s do this!!!!”
