I love these raw, personal videos. I've always loved your character of Snooki but it's fantastic to see the "human" side of Nicole!

I am dealing with binge eating...and i feel like i am running in a circle...one day i am totally fine...eating high fat low carb but then i totally freak out and eat like 5000kcal in 20min until i am so full that i just want to throw up ... but i am always telling myself: tomorrow is a new day... So if you are reading this and also deal with problems like this, remember: You are not alone! Try to love yourself...be kind to yourself and it’s totally fine to have „bad“ days! Just work on it! And never give up ❤️

im 5'8" and i used to be obsessed with looking like a model. i would work out everyday, run 6 miles , and just not eat. I would eat maybe 500 calories a day. i got to 117 pounds and was a size two and still looked into the mirror and saw a fat girl. i also didn't get my period for about four months. i honestly didn't think anything was wrong with me and none of my friends seemed to notice. after high school i moved to israel and started a new adventure and being skinny wasn't my main priority then. (also the food in israel is AMAZING). i found a great group of friends and just enjoyed life. im about 140 pounds now, size six, and i feel beautiful! i want to share this story, maybe it can help someone else! thanks nicole, i love how strong you are! <3

Thanks for opening up about it! I know you’ve gotten hate for gaining weight/ losing weight & everything in between. Maybe your story and confidence will help someone. Love you, Nicole❤️

I remember in season 1 in Atlantic City mike told you you had rolls and you opened up to Jenny in the bathroom about your eating disorder in highschool. You definitely lost a lot of weight before Lorenzo, you lost a bunch between season 3 and season 4. When you went to Italy season 4 after dating Jionni for a few months you looked so tiny. I think even mike commented on it when you first got to Italy. I hate men like that. You were always beautiful and still are no matter your weight and how much it may fluctuate ❤️

I'm suffering from an eating disorder {starvation some days and bulimia on the other days as well as laxative abuse} and have been for the last 9 months. I let myself go and 2 kids and 10 years later I ballooned up to 273 lbs and im 5ft7. Last December I lost my mom to suicide 8 days before Christmas and something snapped in me. Thats when it all started. In the last 9 months ive dropped 76 lbs and im down to 197lbs. Its so hard to stop once you start. People start giving you compliments left and right and tell you how much better you look. I'll start eating a meal and in my head im telling myself that im not going to make myself sick afterwards and about halfway through the meal I know that im going to make myself sick... Im trying so hard to snap out of it. Im so happy for you being able to overcome your eating disorder. Hopefully I can do the same. <3 Thank you for speaking out about one of the most embarrassing and hush hush diseases. God bless.

We need a HUSBAND TAG/or anything about marriage, if Jionni made it to JS he should make it for YouTube!!! Pls
Nicole Marie
I went through the same thing when I was a Freshman in High School and it lasted until I was a Senior. For me mine started obviously by seeing other girls with a flat stomach but I actually went through with it when I started dating an abusive guy. I developed anxiety and depression shortly after and my eating disorder went on for four years until I hid rock bottom and ended up in the hospital. It was one of the scariest moments in my life and I’m glad that chapter in my life is behind me. I loved hearing your story Nicole and I can’t wait for more stories to come. ❤️
Sherry Guns
I had EDNOS eating disorder not otherwise specified from 20 to 32. I don’t think I will really ever get over it. I still try to eat just once a day. Right now it feels like my stomach is eating its self. It is a life long struggle. I was 5 9 and 102 pounds of skin and bones. Mental abuse is what put me there. Thank you for sharing. You are beautiful on the inside and out ❤️❤️❤️
Kay Ashley
I didn't feel right 'liking' this video, but you spoke so well and articulated how you felt in such a beautiful and wonderful way. I have the utmost respect for you Nicole.
G DeVz
i'm 5 feet tall so i know what you're talking about gaining weight it shows everywhere!
Alanna Shaw
Maybe talk about how you girls sort of brought women and their sexuality into the mainstream, and that women can have hook ups just like men can. How you would meet guys at bars and have fun but now you're married and happy. I don't know if that makes sense but I hope you get what I mean
Chelsea
Thanks for sharing! I love how she bleeps out some swears and not others lol
Amber dominguez
Hey Snooki love u girl

Jessi Greer

So right, eating disorders are no joke nor are they an easy fix. It sometimes takes people a life-time to overcome eating issues.
Erica Patterson
I was anorexic from 7th grade until two years after I graduated high school. At my skinniest I was about 85 pounds at 5'4" and even now I still want that. I eat when I'm hungry and try to eat the right things but those thoughts are still there. In high school I took diet pills multiple times a day so that I wasn't hungry and if I did get hungry I would chug water so that the hunger pains would stop. My mom made breakfast one day and all I let myself eat was one bite of a sausage and one bite of a pancake and called that good. I remember being 13 years old and my mom was straightening my hair on Thanksgiving morning and I got super nauseous and so my mom left so I could puke in privacy and I passed out and woke up in a pool of my own blood from cracking my head open. Now I refuse to weigh myself. I don't own a scale. Now I'm pregnant and cry every time I get weighed at the doctor, or I just dont look at the scale. I sincerely hope my child doesn't go through what I did, and if they do I'm going to help more than my family did.
Chloe Romero
I love how real you are, don't ever change! Xx

I went through the "Flyer Panic", as well. It's a lot easier when you're already really short, uk? Most girls can't achieve <100lbs. Especially not healthily.
Alessia Diana
So many people need to see this video ❤️ Thank you Nicole ❣️
Taylor Marie
I love how real and honest you are. I also really needed to hear this. The last year I went from 110 pounds (I fluctuated between that and 100) and wearing a 00 to currently being between 140-145 wearing a size 7. I just turned 24 and I've been married to my husband for 3 years and I didn't really notice how much weight I was gaining until other people started pointing it out to me. I couldn't go anywhere without hearing the "Are you pregnant??" Oh wow Taylor, you're really starting to get some hips on you" "Maybe that's just your body preparing itself for getting pregnant" "Oh, you must just be comfortable in your relationship." I started looking back at old pictures and comparing myself. I started getting stretch marks all over my body and not fitting into any of my clothes. My husband is so sweet and says he doesn't care and he loves me how I am but he doesn't understand how much girls get scrutinized for their weight and body shape and it makes me sad because I can't fully be myself anymore because I'm so insecure, I'm only 24, I'm supposed to be in my prime and feel good. I've been trying to eat healthy and I've been drinking tons of water and taking pictures every few days to compare and I noticed my stomach getting bigger and when I weighed myself today I actually gained a few pounds... I'm feeling a little defeated atm but you're such an inspiration to keep going. Thank you. Love you. 💕

Girl, I adore you! I went through anorexia nervosa as well... and it was hell! Even now when it has been more than 8 years since I started recovering I get emotional when trying to talk about it. So thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Greetings from Chile! ;)

Love you Snooki. This was really inspiring.
Daniel Hubley
I love her so much. I love the entire shore family (I even kinda like Angelina 😂) But I love how really Snooki always is and always will be ❤️ so happy you’re happy and healthy now!
Alex Lesane
I used to have anorexia. It got so bad that my heart was only beating 30 beats per minute. I was dying. I was terrified to even drink water. I would have break down if I even ate a grape. Plus I was taking 12 laxatives a day almost not even kidding.

Kim McKay
that was such a great honest really touching vlog Nicole, I admire your ability to share your struggles and show people the real you. I can imagine you get all kinds of comments, but I hope on this vlog they are all amazingly Positive. Congrats on you awesome success and you have a Beautiful Family! Keep these Fabulous Vlogs coming ;-) Im a bit older than you and a single mom of a now 20yr old son, life was a constant struggle being a single mom my son's life and often body image played a nasty roll in my life. I know am learning that Not eating is the wrong thing and feeding my body healthy choices and a regular work out program helps physically AND most of all Mentally i feel better.

I'm the same age as you and was a cheerleader for 11 years. I remember back then being stick thin was in. But I was always curvy. Had muscular naturally thick thighs and a big booty.. But I went through an anorexic stage as well freshman year. I look at pictures and I was too thin for my frame. I remember not long after high school being "thick" became in. And women with curves were embraced. Thank God lol but I needed that confidence when I was younger when it was most important. Point is, I can relate.
Hannah Fierle
YES SNOOKI 😂 I love you!
