Milania Giudice dropped a whopping 40 pounds when she was in middle school at the apparent prompting of her mother, Teresa Giudice, and her sisters.

While appearing on the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s podcast last week, 17-year-old Milania admitted to feeling that Teresa, 51, was dropping subtle hints about her weight as her three sisters, Gia Giudice, 22, Gabriella Giudice, 18, and Audriana Giudice, 13, were more blunt about her eating habits.

“I weighed so much. My heaviest was like 150, and then when I was done [losing weight], I was like 110,” Milania revealed on the July 5 episode of Namaste B$tches, via Page Six. “I was so skinny after that. I was literally like a stick. I was so skinny because I just worked out, but I felt good.”

According to Milania, Teresa would never outright tell her she should lose weight, but she would drop hints.

“My mom would — she would never say anything to me — but she’d be like, ‘Oh, you’re gonna have another ice cream?’” she recalled.

But at the time, Milania was unconcerned and would tell her mom, “‘I don’t care if I’m fat!’ I’d be like, ‘If I’m fat, I’m fat. Whatever. It’s my life,’” She also said, “‘Mom, don’t say anything to me. If I’m gonna have another ice cream, I’m gonna have another ice cream!’”

Meanwhile, Milania’s sisters would “always throw jabs.”

“Like, ‘Oh, you’re gonna have another ice cream after dinner?’ They would always throw little jabs at me, but it was fine. It was whatever,” said Milania, whose dad is Joe Giudice, 51.

Although Milania was initially uninterested in making changes to her lifestyle, she ultimately made the decision to embark on a healthier diet and exercise routine.

“It just clicked, and I did it,” Milania shared.

And after hearing what her teenager had to say, Teresa, who insisted Milania has always been “adorable,” admitted, “They have to wanna do it themselves.”

“You can’t force them, and I didn’t want her to have a complex or anything, and I thought she looked adorable. She was just a little thicker,” she noted as Milania confessed to being a “full-on pumpkin” in her younger years.

Once Milania began to feel “suffocated in [her] own body,” she embarked on what she’s declared to be a “glow up” as Teresa hired a nutritionist, who made Milania three “[healthy] meals” each day, and she began working out twice a day, both before and after school.

“It happens to everybody. You go through a glow-up in your life,” Milania explained. “I had my glow-up when I was hitting eighth grade, I’d say.”

Since then, Milania has gained some of the weight back but still feels “good.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey is expected to go into production on season 14 in mid-August.
