Snooki Shows Off Skinny Body One Year After Giving Birth (PHOTO)

Looking good, Snooki! The pint-size "Jersey Shore" star showed off her newly slimmed-down frame Thursday at -- out of all things -- a "Bridezillas" wedding cake-eating contest in New York.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, 25, welcomed her first child in August 2012. After losing the more than 40 pounds she gained during pregnancy, the 4-foot 9-inch star told Us Weekly she kept a strict four-day-a-week workout routine and ate less than 1,300 calories a day to lose the weight.

She also admitted that fiancé Jionni LaValle provided a separate motivation. "Even though I'm busy with Lorenzo all the time, I still want to look good for Jionni, 'cause I don't want him to run away ever from me," she said. "So I basically try to go to the gym all the time and train with my trainer and do cardio as much as possible."
