Snooki's shrinking! Former Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi paraded her super-slimmed down body at the SELF Rocks the Summer event at the Dream Downtown in New York City on Tuesday, July 16.
Wearing black studded heels, a black leather skirt, and a white lace cleavage-baring top, the mom to 10-month-old Lorenzo showed off her tiny frame and fit physique on the red carpet. She completed her chic style with a bright pink clutch, leaving her dyed red hair flowing over her shoulders.
Indeed, the MTV star -- who showed off her 42 pound weight loss in Us Weekly's March issue -- has worked hard to keep the weight off. "I have a trainer [Anthony Michael in New Jersey] and he has me doing a lot of weights, biometrics," she told Us Weekly at the event. "I love arms and I hate legs! [My trainer] kicks my ass to look good!"
While the workouts are tough, the 25-year-old (who's currently planning her 2014 wedding to her fiance, Jionni LaValle) tells Us that she's never been more proud of herself. "When I work out, that’s when I feel good -- when I’m strong," she explained. "I’ve never been this strong in my life."
Besides hitting the gym, Snooki said that she makes sure to have a ton of "mommy and me" time with Lorenzo."I love waking up in the morning and he just wants to cuddle," she gushed. "He hugs me and we laugh and we watch cartoons together. We watch Disney Junior all the time -- Princess Sophia, Mickey Mouse Club, all that stuff. We laugh. I love the morning with him."
She shared that the days of waking up to a hangover at the shore house are long gone -- and she's completely fine with that!
"It’s weird -- being a mom has made me grow up," she told Us. "It’s made me think that partying is just bulls---. It’s a phase that you go through. Now I’m a mother and there’s so much more to life than just having a good time."
