Is self-described "Meatball" Deena Nicole Cortese is starting to look a little less meaty?

The "Jersey Shore" star hit the beach today in New Jersey, where she showed off her slimmed down stomach in a bikini.

Cortese has gone through a massive transformation since the last season of the MTV show -- and recently got veneers, thinned her eyebrows and lost weight using the Fresh Diet.

Deena also says she learned how to do do her makeup better, which "gives an effect of higher cheek bones."

She wasn't the only one showing some skin -- see some shots of The Situation's situation here.

Check out Deena's transformation since joining the show in the gallery above!
