Here's what Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi looked like while starring on "Jersey Shore," which premiered in 2009 on MTV.
She quickly rose to fame as a reality star and even got a book deal in 2011:
She was often made fun of for her big hair and outlandish style:
But after she had a baby in August, Snooki hit the gym and started documenting her workout routines for followers:April 29, 2013
She worked hard and posted her progress. "I go [to a trainer] four times a week, and we do legs, arms and everything," Snooki told People magazine. "And after every one-hour workout, I do an hour of cardio."
And results started to show. "Finally starting to come together after having a baby in there!" she captioned this photo:
In March, she appeared on the cover of Us Weekly after losing 42 pounds.
But she didn't stop there. "I'm still working my a-- off, but it's all worth it. I'm now motivated and I want to change my body."
"How I start my Saturday's.... #buns &guns"
Now, Snooki says she has lost 50 pounds off her 4'8 frame and weighs 96 pounds. "Getting more toned & defined!!" she wrote Tuesday. "#muscles #fitlife."
She is inspiring others to get healthy by posting how-to workout videos to her website.
But while her physique may have changed, her style remains as bold as ever.
Yesterday, Snooki posted this photo to Instagram, writing " #fitMom #damnproud."
