Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Shares Her ‘Postpartum Reality’ 3 Days After Welcoming Daughter
When it comes to her post-baby body, Mellencamp, who gained 45 pounds while pregnant with Dove, is taking her time there, too.
“With Slate and Cruz, I gained over 80 pounds,” says Mellencamp. “I thought I’d never get to where I wanted to be; I thought it was impossible.”
But now, after a “lifestyle shift” following the birth of her son, the All In By Teddi founder and accountability coach has a different mentality.
“Now that I’m committed to my lifestyle, I’ve created a confidence in myself,” says Mellencamp. “I know my body will do what it wants to do when it’s ready. That being said, I also created an All In postpartum program, and I’m going through it myself. It’s all about the support!”
“I feel really grateful that I was active during pregnancy because I’m able to be active [after],” she adds. “Being able to go for a walk has really helped. I listen to my body. And I feel better when I’m moving.”
The busy mom is also bracing herself for the new season of Housewives, premiering April 15 on Bravo.
“My husband and I joke that since we made it through that season while I was pregnant, we can get through anything,” says Mellencamp with a laugh. “We had some high highs and some low lows. And a lot of craziness!”
