Snooki loses 42 pounds and shows off her weight loss on an Us Weekly cover… (Us Weekly )
Snooki has lost 42 pounds, proving that, while she hasn't gone anywhere, her baby weight has definitely gone bye-bye.
It's been a while since those "Jersey Shore" kids made headlines -- once Snooki announced she was pregnant and costar Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino checked into rehab, the cast's hard-partying ways officially became a thing of the past. The show wrapped its sixth and final season last December but has given rise to several offshoots.
"When you have a baby, everything changes," she told the mag. Snooki and fiance Jionni LaValle welcomed their baby boy, Lorenzo, last August, and she has been working to get into shape since.
"I lost it for me," she added, "but I also wanted Jionni to know that I can be hot as a mom."

She now stars in the MTV spinoff "Snooki & JWoww," and her priorities have shifted from her heavy drinking, juice-head-chasing ways at the Shore.
"I mean I definitely partied for like three people my entire life," she said on the "Today" show last October. "I feel like now, you know, I have a family, I have a baby now, and this is just like a new chapter in my life and I love it. I'm just so excited."
And now she's got her body back. Snooki's Us cover hits newsstands this Friday.
