Deena Cortese may forever carry the "meatball" moniker, but she definitely doesn't look like one.
The Jersey Shore star showed off her slimmed-down figure viaTwitter today, posting a mirror photo of herself modeling a sexy yellow bikini.
She tweeted, "Almost Aruba ready! Couple more weeks to go! Couple more pounds to lose!"
Cortese shared back then that through careful diet and regular exercise, she was able to drop approximately 15 pounds and two dress sizes.
The "blast in a glass" told the mag that she had always struggled with body-image issues and, after watching herself on the hit MTV reality show, she realized her "weight was getting out of control, and I knew it was time to do something about it."
Lookin' good, Deena.
