At the Jersey Shore Season 6 premiere party in New York on October 4, Wetpaint Entertainment spoke to Deena Nicole in an exclusive interview. The svelte meatball shared her plans for losing more weight, how much weight she’s lost so far, and why she went off her diet for a month.

Wetpaint Entertainment: How much weight have you lost so far?
Deena Nicole: Probably around 15 pounds, give or take.

Are you still trying to lose more?
I definitely do. Right now, I went off my diet for a month, kind of just to give it a rest. I just actually went back on it. [I’m doing] Jenny Craig. I started with Fresh and went to Jenny Craig, and now I’m just eating, just portions, but I’m going back on Jenny Craig because I want to lose a little more.

How does your new look feel?
I love my look, it’s lumineers. I feel great, I feel more confident. I’m just feeling like a whole new person.

Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
