Before Jersey Shore, before Dancing With the Stars, before becoming a mom to baby boy Lorenzo, Snooki was just a normal girl trying to fit in.
What wasn't normal, however, was her eating disorder.
Last night, the reality star opened up about that longtime battle during her segment on Dancing With the Stars, admitting that "it got really, really bad."
"Cheerleading was my life in high school but it wasn't always easy for me," Snooki said, recalling her more difficult times. "I started to be anorexic."
"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."
