Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi is known for her drunken escapades and basically, that’s sort of it. Of course, her life has changed plenty since the Jersey Shore days. She’s got a baby now, she’s on Dancing with the Stars and she’s lost a lot of weight. Like, a lot of weight – 50 lbs, and that’s a lot especially for someone so short. She was never “fat”, but you know what society is like – her nickname used to be “meatball”, for God’s sake – and I guess she really wanted to get fit, so here we are. Snooki is a size 0 now and she’s really proud of that. Like, really proud.
From Life & Style:
“I used to hate going to the gym, but now I love it,” she admits. “I lift very heavy weights, and I’m strong!”
DWTS is helping to keep her fit as well. “It’s helping to keep my legs and everything else toned. Dancing is an amazing workout! I’m a size 0 and damn proud of it!”
Well, good for her. I recently lost 30 lbs and I’m thrilled as shit, so it’s definitely something to be proud of. Still, it’s a shame that it just reenforces the idea that if society has enough to say about how you personally exist – especially as a woman – you’ll eventually change to conform. On the flip side, Snooki seems to really have got into the groove and loves working out, so I don’t think this is all about outward pressure. Either way, uh, you go girl?
