Snooki has lost a dramatic 50 lbs since giving birth to her first child Lorenzo Dominic LaValle in August last year.
It seems Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is finally feeling beach body confident, as she took to the shores of New Jersey on Monday to show off the results of her incredible hard work.
Walking hand in hand with her fiance Jionni LaValle who held their baby son Lorenzo close to him, Snooki looked completely at ease as she flaunted her slimline figure in a high-waisted bikini on the public beach in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

In March this year, Snooki commented on her weight loss, saying: “If I can lose 42 lbs. after giving birth six months [ago], I mean, anybody could do it.”
“You just need the dedication, and you need to want to have your body back.”
Now it seems that the 4ft 8in frame star is loving the end result, enjoying the sun in her two-piece bathing suit.
She arrived at the beach with her family wearing a pretty white dress, but as the heat intensified Snooki, 25, had no qualms about getting her bikini body out on display.
After losing a dramatic amount of weight over the past year, Snooki has of course received criticism from people who feel she has taken her weight loss too far.
In response, Snooki took to Twitter last month to tell people she was happy and that was what is important.
She tweeted: “Everyone’s saying the <<new fit me>> isn’t what I’m suppose to look what. I wasn’t always a fata** kids. Get used to my fitlife, cause I love IT.”
Snooki gave birth to her son in August last year, at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey.
According to reports, Kim Kardashian can’t wait to get back in the gym and regain her slim figure after giving birth to her baby daughter.
“She’s already looking ahead to when she can exercise again,” a source told Us Weekly.
Another added: “She really wants to get back into shape. It’s important to her.”
Kim Kardashian, 32, was working with trainer to the stars Tracy Anderson throughout her pregnancy, but the publication also claims she is considering hiring Gunnar Peterson.
Gunnar Peterson is responsible for helping Kim Kardashian’s younger sister Khloe, 28, with her recent 25 lbs weight loss.
While she is not able to start exercising just yet, Kim Kardashian is allegedly already watching what she eats.
The magazine claims that the reality star’s hospital room is chock-a-block with flowers but she has insisted well-wishers are not allowed to bring any tasty treats for her to eat.
“She has over 30 bouquets from loved ones,” a source said.
“She told everyone not to bring sweets – she said she doesn’t need any temptations.”

It is believed that Kim Kardashian and her daughter, whose name is yet to be revealed, will stay in hospital until the baby, who was born five weeks prematurely, reaches five pounds.
While Kim Kardashian and the little one are getting some rest, the baby’s father Kanye West has apparently been hard at work.
The rapper’s creative juices have been flowing since he welcomed his daughter into the world.
“He’s been really inspired by the birth,” a source told Life & Style.
“He’s written four songs already.”
The insider added that while Kanye West, whose album Yeezus was released on Tuesday, has been busy with his music, he has also been very attentive to his two girls.
“Kanye is actually really being good right now,” the source said.
Kim Kardashian is unsurprisingly enamored with her child and gushed to a friend that the little one “is so cute and sweet”, according to Us Weekly.
But she had a stressful time during the birth over the weekend.
Warned by doctors that she was most likely suffering from the life-threatening condition preeclampsia, Kim Kardashian was forced to deal with going into premature labor on Friday night to save the life of her baby girl.
In the few days before Kim Kardashian was rushed to hospital with suspected preeclampsia, she relaxed in Los Angeles sunshine.
The 32-year-old reality star looked beautiful as she showed off her expectant form in a pretty bikini while relaxing by a pool with friends.

Kim Kardashian gained a substantial amount of weight during her pregnancy and she is apparently already trying to shift those pounds.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made headlines for being worlds apart during much of her pregnancy, but that certainly wasn’t the case on Friday night as the rapper made sure he was front and centre for the birth of his first child with the reality star.
Kanye west, 36, had been scheduled to make an appearance at a release party in Los Angeles for his new album Yeezus, which is due out on Tuesday.
But Kim Kardashian, 32, had started feeling ill Friday and, after having contractions, admitted herself to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center near Beverly Hills five weeks ahead of her scheduled due date, causing Kanye West to skip out on his own party.
Several of Kim Kardashian’s close friends, including Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban both attended the event and sources said that there were whispers around the room that Kim had already gone into labour by the time the party started.

According to sources, Kanye West stayed by Kim Kardashian’s side through the ordeal and refused to leave her side even as she went into full labour and had a natural birth at 1:30 a.m. on Saturday morning.
“Of course, Kanye was there with Kim when she went to the hospital and had the baby,” Us Weekly reported, saying that he “wouldn’t have missed the arrival of the couple’s bundle of joy for anything”.
Only days earlier the couple had been fielding rumors that Kanye West had strayed from their relationship.
Canadian model Leyla Ghobadi, 24, told Star Magazine that she and Kanye West had a fling last July that continued for several months, but reps for both Kim and Kanye vigorously deny the claims.
While Kanye West is undoubtedly happy to be celebrating his first Father’s Day, the focus on his latest album Yeezus prevented the duo from spending much time together.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced the pregnancy in December and shortly thereafter Kanye sought refuge in France to begin recording.
Kim Kardashian was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital and gave birth to her first child on June 15, a month ahead of her due date.
Before giving birth to a baby girl, pregnant Kim Kardashian posted five pre-baby bikini snaps on Instagram for throwback Thursday.

Kim Kardashian, 32, posted four pictures from her Cabo swimsuit shoot and one sunrise rooftop snap, which were all captured by lensman Troy Jensen.
“Can’t wait to go back,” the expecting mini-mogul had tweeted to her 17.9 million followers – hinting at both Mexico and her pre-baby figure.
Meanwhile, Kanye West, 36, was last spotted at the Yeezus listening party in Switzerland Tuesday.
Kanye West’s album was leaked online Friday and fans wondered whether he was referring to his post-Kardashian lifestyle in the lyrics to his track, New Slave.
Kanye West raps: “I’ll move my family out the country/So you can’t see where I stay/So go and grab the reporters/So I can smash his recorders.”
Kim Kardashian was last seen Wednesday in a baby bumb-hugging green Top Shop dress having lunch at Casa Vega with her friend Jonathan Cheban.
Snooki & JWOWW reality show has revealed touching moments of Snooki giving birth to baby Lorenzo.
There were some comedy moments after father Jionni LaValle wondered if he could put gel in Lorenzo’s hair and if Snooki – real name Nicole Polizzi – ate chocolate would her breast milk taste like chocolate milk.
The proud father also described seeing the placenta – “a big bloody stingray flapping out of her vagina”.
Snooki and Jionni LaValle had some big decisions to make, with circumcision being their first and while both were nervous about it, they decided to do it.
“He’ll thank me for it one day,” Snooki said.
“Bye Wiener!” she shouted as they took him out to do the procedure.

Snooki, 25, also wanted to know if she could keep the foreskin to add to her scrapbook.
Luckily for the pair, Jionni LaValle’s mother has already prepared their home for the baby, clothes stacked in piles and all.
Two Dutch male presenters, Dennis Storm and Valerio Zena, volunteered to experience labor pains for a skit on their TV show – and found it harder to stomach than they realized.
Dennis Storm and Valerio Zena were hooked up to electrodes that replicated the contractions women are forced to undergo – but the men only lasted two hours before they begged for the electrodes to be taken off.
The faux labor was filmed and screened during an episode of their hit TV show, Proefkonijnen (Guinea Pigs).
But the labor challenge proved too much for the hosts, who writhed in agony as the electrodes kicked in.
Speaking ahead of the simulated labor, Dennis Storm and Valerio Zena revealed they wanted to experience the pain of childbirth because they’d heard that “giving birth is the worst pain there is”.
Strapped up to the electrodes and with the stunt seconds from starting, Valerio Zena asks of a nurse: “Do you think the pain will make us scream?”
She replies: “Yes, it definitely will.”
And the nurse’s prediction proved entirely accurate as the pair are left doubled up in pain within moments of the fake contractions kicking in.

Although they make a brave attempt to laugh and joke their way through the experience, the misery on their faces gives the game away.
So bad is the pain, Dennis Zena is left questioning whether he even wants children as his wife would be forced to go through an experience he describes as “torture”.
Dennis Zena and Valerio Storm aren’t the first men to volunteer for fake childbirth.
In 2009, Dr. Andrew Rochford went through a similar experience for Australian TV show, What’s Good for You.
Two hours later, Andrew Rochford was turning the air blue as he struggled to deal with the pain, adding afterwards that he could now “understand why women swear”.
Dennis Storm and Valerio Zena are no strangers to painful stunts. In 2011, they cooked and ate each others’ flesh, which was shown on live TV.

And the fruits of her labor were evident as Beyonce showed off her trim and toned physique in a series of revealing stage costumes.
Now that the singer has returned to the stage and is back in fighting form she revealed that she was going to treat herself.
“Now tonight I’m gonna get chocolate wasted!” Beyonce exclaimed as reported by Us Weekly.
Beyonce, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, wore a series of custom-made Ralph & Russo designs.
It’s been nine months since Beyonce last performed for her adoring fans.
Taking to the stage in New Jersey last night for the first time since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy, it appeared her time out for motherhood hasn’t affected her stage presence.
Beyonce had a few famous people in the audience including First Lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters: Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10.
Also supporting her from the wings was her rapper husband Jay-Z, who recently returned from the London leg of his Watch The Thrones tour with Kanye West.
Under his Twitter name Mr. Carter, Jay-Z wrote: “I’m gonna say this and then I’m gonna end mine. BEYONCE is the best performer in the world. Period.”
Speaking to the 5,500 fans at the Ovation Hall in the Revel, Beyonce said: “I gotta say, it feels so good to be back home on stage.”
However, she didn’t bring up her new life as motherhood too often, except for a fleeting glimpse of Beyonce cradling her daughter in a video montage on the screen behind her.
During the set, Beyonce performed a selection of her biggest hits, including Crazy In Love, Love On Top, Irresistible and If I Were A Boy.
The singer paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston with a cover of I Will Always Love You and closed the concert with Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).
