Snooki lives in New Jersey, so it helped that Michael's business is near the "Jersey Shore" star's home, so she wouldn't have to be far from her baby, Lorenzo.

"When you have a baby, everything changes," Snooki said.  

Snooki, who has had a public battle with her weight since first appearing on the "Jersey Shore" said she was excited to get back into the gym to lose the 42 lbs she gained while being pregnant with baby Lorenzo.

"'I was so excited because I hadn't worked out in six months," Snooki explained. "When I go there, I was like "Let's do this!"'

Snooki expressed that since losing the weight she feels better than she ever has before.

"I feel great," Snooki said after losing the 42 lbs. "I have a lot energy because I work out so much and the endorphins put me in a good mood. And when you're skinnier, you feel so much better about yourself."

Snooki now weighs 102 pounds!

Although the MTV star feels and looks great, she doesn't like everything that comes with exercising.

"I don't like doing legs - that's the worst," Snooki said. "But I like when he works my arms. Now, when I hold Lorenzo, you can see my arm muscles. I've been trying go every day, but it's usually four days a week."

It wasn't only Snooki's exercise routine that changed but her eating habits. After eating junk food for the last weeks of her pregnancy, Snooki knew that in order to lose the 42 lbs, she would have to change her eating habits.

"When I started working with Anthony, he put me on his Express Home Meals," Snooki said. "I eat things like a burger wrapped in lettuce or a salad with strawberries and chicken."

Snooki said she lost the 42 lbs not just for her but for her fiancé Jionn [Lavelle].

 "I lost it for me," Snooki told Us, "but I also wanted Jionni to know that I can be hot as a mom."

Snooki also blogged, "This is only the beginning! I'm going to train until I look like Brooke Burke!"

We think the "Jersey Shore" star certainly is on her way to accomplishing her goals!
