Teresa Giudice started focusing on getting back in shape when she was in prison for fraud charges and without any doubt, the reality star has really shown impressive results. The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star showed her toned body in a picture that was taken on Wednesday (June 27) with her daughter, Gia. The reality star shared the picture on her Instagram with a caption that read "Fun in the Sun with my baby". 

Teresa was seen wearing denim cutoffs and a green bikini top. Meanwhile, her daughter, Gia, wore a high bun with a matching cutoff and red bikini top. This new pic comes after Teresa took to stage on June 9 to compete in the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championship. The reality star showed off her toned body and flat stomach during the competition. The competition was held in Medford, New Jersey and invited contestants from all over the world for participation. Teresa seemed quite happy and confident of her body as she worked way wearing a glittery purple bikini. 

“She has been training since December five or six times per week,” a source close to her told Page Six. The source added that she "drastically" changed her diet in order to get where she is now. Even though Teresa seems to have future plans of joining other competitions, at the moment, she is just happy with how she looks and feels. “[She] has told friends she would consider competing in the future, but for now, no plans to do so,” the insider added.

“[She] wanted to challenge herself physically and is extremely happy with how she did, coming in third out of eight," the insider continued. At the same time, another source told People that Teresa has lost quite a lot of weight while preparing for the competition. “She wanted a new challenge and pushed herself to the extreme. Right now she is in the best shape of her life.” The source added that "she has lost a bunch of weight,” and is “even more fit than when she got home [from prison].”

In order to get ripped abs, toned arms and muscular legs, she worked out “with experienced trainers to help her do this in a responsible way,” the source told the magazine. “And she had the time of her life competing,” the insider added. “She really enjoyed pushing herself…the discipline, the focus. She may do it again in the future.” Teresa had the support of her brother Joe Gorga, who cheered for her during the competition. 

Since her return from the prison after serving nearly a year at Danbury Federal Correctional Institution for fraud, Teresa has been updating her fans about her workout regime as she was paying more attention to keeping herself fit. However, she did not give any signs about entering into bodybuilding. Teresa managed to secure third place during the competition and felt proud of her achievements.
