Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave has never shied away from sharing her struggles. The mom of two has opened up about her previous troubles with weight loss, health, and fitness that eventually led to her career as an accountability coach. In a recent Instagram shot, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member reflects on her journey with a heartfelt message. To mark her 38th birthday on July 1, Teddi posted a side-by-side snap that highlighted her dramatic weight loss, and more importantly, celebrated her commitment to finding her best self.
“Today I turn 38-years-old,” wrote the fitness company founder. “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.” 2019 Teddi can not only celebrate the loss of unwanted pounds, she can also effectively champion her new lifestyle through her growing @goallinbyteddi network of coaches, clients, family, and friends. “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.”
