Worried About Loose Skin After Weight Loss? Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave Has Advice

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fitness buff shared some encouraging words with fans who worry about having loose skin. 

Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave wasn't always the fitness buff she is today. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal had an amazing — and well-documented — transformation, shedding tons of weight and gaining better overall health in the process. Still, she's had fans ask her about one potential side effect of losing lots of weight: loose skin. On November 5, the accountability coach took to Instagram Stories to weigh in on the tricky topic of loose skin. 

In the post, Teddi showed a side-by-side image of herself running in the Malibu Marathon. "It's all about the angles," Teddi wrote. "This is a @crusephoto taken one second apart from one another ..." Of course, being Teddi, she looks fabulous and fit in both images, but they're not identical. Take a peek:

In her caption, Teddi continued: "I get lots of messages from people asking me why I don't have loose skin after losing lots of weight. I have repeatedly responded with of course I have loose skin. I just don't focus on it and the pictures you are seeing are the good angles. For those of you who are worried about your loose skin. You're not alone. A lot of us have it. [Switch] your focus!"

We totally appreciate Teddi's honesty and level head — just like we appreciate Padma Lakshmi's openness on what goes into picture-perfect workout shots!
