She described the before picture as “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.'”
Mellencamp continued, “The me in that picture would do extreme fad diets, lose a bunch of weight and then gain it all back again.”
The star said of the after photo, “Now, going into my 38th year with four years of consistent commitment to my lifestyle. Four 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.”
She went on, “I am grateful that at this age of 38 I now know that healthy living isn't a diet— it's a lifestyle.”
Mellencamp is the owner of ALL IN by Teddi, which offers accountability coaching for clients who need help reaching health and wellness goals.
In the Instagram post, Teddi called herself “blessed” by her amazing ALL IN team, saying, “This support network is invaluable and one of the best gifts I could ask for.”
