<p><span></span>One addition to the next season of <em>The Real Housewives of New Jersey</em>? <strong>Jacqueline Laurita</strong>'s hot new bod! The Housewife star reveals how she trimmed off 30 pounds in the new issue of<em> Life & Style</em>.<br />
Jacqueline gained 55 pounds while pregnant with her son Nicolas but after giving birth in June 2009, she still had 30 pounds to lose.
Thanks to regular workouts and Medifast meal replacements (including shakes, soups and bars, all supplemented with one meal of protein and veggies per day), the 5-foot-3 reality star has trimmed down to her current weight of 120 pounds. "I lost 12 pounds the first two weeks," Jacqueline, 40, tells Life & Style. "I'm able to get back into my old jeans -- I can't believe it!"
And she can't wait to show off her svelte figure on Real Housewives, which resumes later this year. "It's going to be the best season we've ever had," she says.
