ricki lake dwts weight loss Ricki Lake has lost 20 pounds, down to a size 6 on 'DWTS'The “Dancing With the Stars” stars have been shedding the pounds and none moreso than Ricki Lake, who shares with OMG! that she has lost 20 pounds already from the rigorous amount of dancing required for the show.

“I’m definitely a size six now,” Lake tells the Huffington Post. “I’ll probably be a size four by the end of it. It’s come to the point where it doesn’t matter. I no longer wear Spanx.”

The recently-engaged Lake said previously that she was putting off wedding dress shopping until after “Dancing WIth the Stars,” which is starting to look like an excellent decision on her part. The key, she tells People, is that she’s committing herself to the 5+ hours a day of rehearsal and then trying to eat healthy.

“I’m exhausted. I’m committing to this 110 percent,” says Lake. “Coming in with a
good attitude … and going home and eating a balanced meal. It’s really
that simple.”

OMG! also reports that stars Nancy Grace, Rob Kardashian and Chaz Bono saw significant weight loss. Grace is down 16 pounds but says, “I just think women should love their bodies like they are.”

Kirstie Alley from last season famously lost 100 pounds in the past year, a good portion of that from her time on “Dancing With the Stars.” Gosh, where do we sign up?
