Teddi Mellencamp shares inspiring before-and-after photo as she reflects on her weight loss journey: ‘Healthy living isn’t a diet – it’s a lifestyle’
She has been open about her own weight loss journey, and now coaches clients working towards their own health and fitness goals.
And Teddi Mellencamp had a particularly inspiring message to share with fans as she celebrated her 38th birthday on Monday.
The Real Housewives Of Orange County star posted a dramatic before-and-after photo, as she remembered breaking down into tears after being told by a doctor she weighed over 200 pounds.
She did it! Teddi Mellencamp had a particularly inspiring message to share with fans as she celebrated her 38th birthday on Monday
Teddi posted two photos of herself, one taken in February 2019 and the other taken during ‘one of the many years’ of her struggle with self-care, health, and fitness.
‘Today I turn 38-years-old. Photo on the left: my birthday during one of the many years I was truly struggling with taking care of myself when it came to health and fitness,’ she wrote.
‘I remember having to step on the scale at the doctor— and the tears when the doc said, “Teddi, you’re 5’3″ and over 200lbs.” The me in that picture would do extreme fad diets, lose a bunch of weight and then gain it all back again. Picture on the right:
‘Now, going into my 38th year with four years of consistent commitment to my lifestyle. Four years years I have been All IN— no yo-yo. And even when I do get a little “wild” (for instance, you may have seen me on #RHOBH in Provence), I have the tools to reel it back in rather than letting myself unravel for week’s worth of choices that don’t work for me.

‘I am grateful that at this age of 38 I now know that healthy living isn’t a diet— it’s a lifestyle. I am so blessed to be surrounded by an amazing team @goallinbyteddi who have also changed their lives and continue to help me stay committed to feeling my best.
‘This support network is invaluable and one of the best gifts I could ask for. Thank you to my team of coaches, clients, family and friends who have gone All IN with me. 38 is gonna be the best year yet. #thebestisyettocome #allinbyteddi #healthy #committed.’
