The singer still has a long road ahead of her and is continuing to make sure she remains in a positive place.

Lovato has been focused on exercising

Since checking out of a rehab facility in November, Demi Lovato has been a regular at her favorite gym, Unbreakable Performance Center, in Los Angeles.

The singer has been practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu for some time now and has accomplished a lot during her time as a member.

On March 5, Lovato shared a video to Instagram revealing she actually knocked her trainer, Jay Glazer’s, front tooth out while they were sparing.

The singer captioned the video, “Holy s— I literally knocked @jayglazer’s tooth out during training this morning — while he was wearing a mouth piece!!!! Hahahahaha sorry (not sorry) Jay!!!”

In the video, Glazer rings a bell and holds up his tooth as Lovato is standing next to him. He then announces to the gym, “Demi knocked my tooth out!”

As one can easily see, Demi Lovato looked to be happier and healthier than ever.

She has not relasped

Even though rumors of Demi Lovato relapsing last month due to the backlash she was receiving from her 21 Savage tweets, a source close to the singer revealed they were not true.

Although, Lovato did check into a treatment facility to focus on her health.

“She has not relapsed since she overdosed. She did recently go to a facility, but it was her own decision,” the source said. “It was one trip to a treatment facility for a few weeks outside of Los Angeles.”

Since leaving the treatment facility, Demi Lovato has been home spending time with family and making music.

The singer has been staying true to her sobriety and is so close to celebrating one year of being substance-free.

In January, Lovato celebrated her six-month mark on her Instagram Stories with a Funfetti cake and close family and friends congratulating her on this amazing milestone.

She even commemorated the special day with a new tattoo!

Lovato is still healing but is happy to be alive

In July 2018, it was revealed that Demi Lovato had accidentally overdosed while in her Hollywood Hills home.

The singer was quickly taken to the local hospital where she stayed until she was transported to a rehab facility.

Demi Lovato has constantly battled with addiction and is serious about not going back down the same road she was once on.

In an update on her health following her hospitalization, Demi Lovato took to Instagram (in a since deleted post) to share with fans how she is working toward recovering.

“I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction. What I’ve learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet,” Lovato wrote. “I want to thank God for keeping me alive and well. To my fans, I am forever grateful for all of your love and support throughout this past week and beyond. Your positive thoughts and prayers have helped me navigate through this difficult time,” 

The singer then went on to thank those close to her. “Thank my family, my team, and the staff at Cedars-Sinai who have been by my side this entire time. Without them I wouldn’t be here writing this letter to all of you,” she explained.

Lovato then concluded her post by writing, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”

As we can see, Demi Lovato has stuck by her words and continues making her sobriety her main focus.

Demi Lovato has come a long way these past few months and is expected to keep living her healthy and happy lifestyle for many months to come!
