News that Snooki loses 42 lbs is making celebrity headlines and giving those dealing with weight struggles some newfound hope. Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, recently had a baby, but has been able to shed the weight to the point she can show off her body in a bikini again.
According to a report on March 6 from US Weekly, Polizzi "experienced a complete life makeover" since last year, with her engagement to Jionni LaValle and first-ever pregnancy which gave way to baby boy Lorenzo in August. She said "When you have a baby, everything changes." She picked up plenty of excess weight due to the pregnancy, but shed an incredible 42 pounds and showed off her shapely figure in an animal print bikini for the March issue of US Weekly magazine.
Snooki's secrets are revealed in the brand new magazine which hits newsstands on Friday. Part of her motivation was not just to lose the 42 lbs for herself, but also for Jionni, whom she wants to know she "can be hot as a mom."
Snooki rose to fame on reality TV with MTV's "Jersey Shore" series, which aired multiple seasons before ending just last year. Her latest show is "Snooki & JWoww" which co-stars her "Jersey" castmate Jenni "JWoww" Farley on MTV. Viewers in Roanoke can watch episodes of the show which just started its second season in January via Cox Cable channel 29.
