Reality TV star who 'covered up insecurities' including loose skin for years is 'done'

Teddi Mellencamp has undergone a total weight transformation, but she’s now dished her thoughts on how a summer body doesn’t exist. She covered up the loose skin on her stomach for years.

Former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Teddi Mellencamp, is finally opening up about her weight loss journey. She is now “done covering up her insecurities” as summer approaches.

Teddi Mellencamp posts throwback pic

Teddi Mellencamp has been very vocal about her weight loss journey. She often shares throwback pictures, including a recent snap of her covered up with a full-body top instead of wearing a bikini.

The former RHOBH star explained she’d been on the beach at the time and was just “covering up her insecurities rather than facing them head-on”. She also said that summer bodies don’t exist.

Even once she’d achieved the body she aimed for, Teddi still picked apart at her body, such as at the loose skin on her stomach. However, she’s “done” with doing this and now celebrates her body.

She’s ‘done covering’ her ‘insecurities’

Teddi is now embracing what her body does for her and never done fad diets to get where she is today. She wrote, “At my heaviest, I felt lonely, sad and angry. At my smallest, I felt panicked and stressed.”

She worried she would gain the weight back and added, “I very rarely felt great in my own skin. After struggling to get pregnant with my son and undergoing multiple IVF treatments, I gained 80+ pounds.”

However now, she helps women wanting to change their lifestyle, after she “finally admitted to myself that I needed to change.” She said her life only changed when she adopted a positive mindset.

RHOBH star’s weight loss transformation

Instead of having pasta, wine, and dessert, Teddi will choose one. And thanks to being active every day, eating healthy, and holding herself accountable online, Mellencamp eventually lost 80 pounds.

In 2019, the mom of three shared that there were times when she was “truly struggling with taking care of myself when it came to health and fitness,” and at one point she weighed over 200 lbs. 

When she went on Big Brother, Teddi ended up putting on 10lbs from the non-stop sugary snacks.
