I've been gone for over a year -Picture Recap- & Updates!!!

Thursday, July 25, 2013

I'v been gone from SparkPeople for over a year now, but at least i don't come bearing bad news :-) I've been able to maintain 150 lbs for over a year now, but my ultimate goal is to reach 130 lbs. I had a beautiful baby girl somewhere in all of this craziness and with Weight Watchers, I'm hoping to finally lose the last 20 lbs :-)

Gianna will soon be 6 months and i have not lost a single pound. It's time to be accountable for what i've been eating. Also i'm signed up for TWO Color Run 5ks. One in October in Lehigh Valley and one in November in Baltimore!!!

Here's a nice little recap of the last year:


This is July 2012. I found out I was pregnant and reached the 150 pound mark.


20 Weeks Pregnant, September 2012. IT'S A GIRL!!!



8 Months Pregnant December 2012


Gianna Rose Testa February 2013


Currently July 2013

Monday, January 30, 2012

Happy Monday Everyone (NOT) :-)

So i noticed that i had not done a blog in quite some time, and when i just took a peek at my last entry, i realized that i have lost 26 lbs since my last update.
I guess it's time for some new pictures and a few updates from the last 2 1/2 months:

-Went for an XL top to a L top
-Those pants in the pic are now my comfy loose jeans for when i feel bloated
-Re-sized my engagement ring and went from a size 8 to a 6
-Excuse my Candor: Sex gets better and better ;-)
-I'm like a PRO at Zumba now
-Signed up for my first 5k (May 2012)

I would've liked to have a full body shot of me, but that will have to be for my 170 lbs update. In the mean time i will leave you with a couple of face shots from back in May right before i started, and a couple from this past week, so you can see the progress!

New Goal Outfit Picture (not of me), and little Ramblings!!!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

SOOOOOOO,

Yesterday i took my little sister shopping, and one of her favorite stores is American Eagle Outfitters. Any other time i would've walked in and went straight for the cute Shoes, Hats and Jewelry because in my head, it has always been a "Skinny Girl Store".

Anyway, they had these awesome Flannel Tops


So i figured i would pick out a "Goal" outfit for when i reached 70 lbs lost. I picked a pair of very slim looking Skinny Jeans in their biggest size (14)


To my surprise, i went to see how the outfit looked now, before my goal, just so i had an idea, and ALAS they already fit perfectly =)

Can you believe I've been wearing size 20 pants for the last 6 months. I mean, i knew they were lose on me, but i never thought i was down to a size 14.

In the end i didn't buy the top because i want a "Goal Outfit" not a right now outfit, but i did buy the pants because i realized how lose those other jeans really were =) Hopefully tonight i'll upload a picture of me with my new pants on.

So, the moral of my story is:
1-Don't ever think any store is just a Skinny Girl Store
2-Measure yourself Every month
3-Reward yourself when you reach mini goals
4-Remember to alwasy keep moving

    I KNOW!!! 14 it's crazy, i thought i was an 18 and that's why my pants were lose. I thought of the same thing before buying them, but i realized my pants were so saggy, it was time, and also both my mom and sister wear a size 4/6 -_- Lol. It sounds like you're doing a great Job too....Keep Moving =)

MRS_BRENDA_P 11/15/2011 2:15PM

    Love that top and the jeans! It is crazy that you're a 14 and have been wearing a size 20 all this time :-) I think I'm at about an 18 and have been wearing 22 pants for a while lol. I don't want to buy jeans that won't fit in a few months so I think I'm going to wait until I can fit into a 16 and borrow my mom and sister's pants lol. I love the moral of your story :-) Keep working hard girl cuz it's paying off.

50 Lbs Down....73 Lbs to go

Monday, October 31, 2011

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

-Today, Ladies and Gentlemen. I have lost 50 Lbs,

Do you know i hadn't lost this much weight since 2008 when i had 2 Jobs and went to school full time, and was at the gym 5 days a week.

Now, I do Zumba 3 days a week. Strength Training once a week, and i go for walks with my Yorkie. As for food. I now watch everything i put in my body. Specially Sugar and Fat.

I have never felt better, and it's only going to get better. For the first time, in a long time, i have this feeling, like everything i put my mind into will happen. I have worked hard, these past months, and there is no stopping me now.

I take my monthly weight and measurements on the 13th of every month, and even though this past weigh in was low on the lbs, it was still high on the inches that came off, which helped me keep it moving. Now that i started Zumba i have lost more weight in the last 3 weeks, that i did from Sept-Oct, and i have completely fallen in love with it.

I hope everyone great success, and remember. Just Keep Moving emoticon
