Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp is opening up about her body transformation.
Fresh off her 38th birthday, the reality star and daughter of rock singer John Mellencamp revealed that her weight loss has been slow and steady but quite rewarding nonetheless.
“Today I turn 38-years-old,” she wrote earlier this week on her Instagram page. “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. 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.”
Mellencamp, who is a mom of three and now a fitness coach, revealed that after years of trying to get pregnant and IVF, she gained over 80 pounds with her last pregnancy. After losing the weight, she also revealed she had a breast lift done to combat saggy skin.
Now, she’s finally found what works for her body and is looking to inspire more women to achieve their goals.
“I am grateful that at this age of 38 I now know that healthy living isn’t a diet — it’s a lifestyle,” she said. “… 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.”
