Last we heard, Snooki shed 44 pounds and was down to a teeny tiny 109, but it seems like those numbers are even smaller now!

In her Us Weekly cover story, on newsstands now, the Jersey Shore guidette revealed that she has lost 42 pounds, weighing in at a mere 102 pounds now, and you’ll never believe why she did it.

In addition to wanting to be there for her 6-month-old son, Lorenzo, as he grows up and generally being health-conscious, Snooks admitted that her biggest motivation was looking good for her fiance, Jionni LaValle.

“Part of me wanted to lose the weight for him because I’m psycho — I don’t want him to leave me!” she spilled, but she knows that she doesn’t have to worry and added, “But he did start dating me when I was heavy, and he loved me then.”

Aww. While he definitely loves her new bod, the pint-sized sweetheart surprisingly says that Jionni doesn’t like when she wears tight clothes! She dished, “He loves it, but he gets mad now because I wear tight things or short skirts.”

Jionni probably doesn’t want anyone eyeing his lady love, but he doesn’t have anything to worry about — Snooks obviously only has eyes for him!
