Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is known for being pint-sized, but that doesn't mean she has had it easy when it comes to the battle with her weight. Since we were first introduced to the Staten Island girl on Jersey Shore in 2009, her weight loss (and gain) through years of partying, her relationship with fiancé Jionni LaValle, and her pregnancy with baby Lorenzo, has been a hot topic. But now, a year after giving birth to her little meatball, she is showing her fab physique off to everyone. We take a look at Snooki's body evolution.

Three years before we ever heard the words "Snooki" or "GTL," the soon-to-be reality star was just living a normal life and enjoying her senior year and summer fun with girlfriends. Can you believe that is Snooki on the right in the tiny bikini?
Fast-forward to the end of 2009 -- Snooki had already filmed the first season of Jersey Shore and was being thrown into the limelight. But being in front of the cameras meant watching her weight. She may have filled out a bit since high school, but she still had a cute figure as she debuted the "poof" hairstyle.

As her fame took off and the hard-partying with her roommates continued, Snooki started putting on inches. She revealed her bathing-suit body on the Jersey beaches while filming the second season of the show.
By the end of the summer of 2010, Snooki's weight continued to rise -- and the tanning and makeup got more out of control. The oversized hat didn't help.
As a new summer heated up, a new man entered Snooki's life: Jionni! As the reality star found love on the beach, she began to drop the pounds. Was she finally growing up and cutting back on her unhealthy lifestyle?
The slim-down continued into the end of 2011 and Jionni's love blossomed. This was probably the greatest weight-loss that the reality star had seen since her early days as a celebrity.
Snooki's entire world changed at the start of 2012 when she discovered that she and Jionni were going to become parents to a little guido or guidette of their very own! As the pregnancy was still in the early stages, Snooki had just begun to poof out a little -- and we are not talking about her hair this time.
With only two months to go before she welcomed a little meatball into the world, Snooki, for once, didn't look thrilled to be in front of cameras.
Lorenzo was born at the end of August, and we didn't see the camera-loving gal for a full two months after that -- until she debuted her post-pregnancy body to the public for the first time.y for her new child -- and for herself!
