In case you missed it, Snooki channeled her old high school self this week on DWTS as she put on an AH-mazing cheerleader inspired performance!
But according to the reality starlet, her teenage years weren't quite as cheerful as her dance moves.
During rehearsals, Snooki said she was excited to show off her skills from her cheerleading days, but she also admitted that her time on the squad eventually led her to develop an eating disorder.
"I started to be anorexic. I had an eating disorder and it got really, really bad. There were these little girls coming up, like freshmen, who were literally, like, 70 pounds. And I was, like, my spot as a flier is going to get taken away. So I ended up starving myself. I started eating one salad a day, and then it became, like, one cracker a day, and then it became just one grape a day. And then.. just not eating at all for three days. It was a really, really bad time for me."
Despite bringing up some painful memories, Snooki said she was definitely looking forward to the opportunity to create newer, happier memories, and she certainly did!
Not only has she been amazing on DWTS, but she has gotten into incredible shape since becoming a mommy, and she's doing it the right way!
Keep it up, girl!
