Add Ricki Lake to the list of celebrities who have participated in what has become America’s unofficial celebrity weight loss show: Dancing With the Stars.

She may not have lost the 100 pounds boasted by one recent finalist (check out these Kirstie Alley weight loss pics), but Lake has certainly slimmed down.

You can see difference from the pre-season promo pic to the present:

Ricki Lake has lost 20 pounds of weight on DWTS.

Lake is clearly enjoying her thinner frame, and looking healthy and wonderful while doing it. Ricki’s also maintaining a healthy attitude towards the process.

“I don’t know. I didn’t weigh myself at the beginning. I’m definitely a size six now. I’ll probably be a size four by the end of it," she told the Huffington Post.

"It’s come to the point where it doesn’t matter to me. I no longer wear Spanx. I don’t have lumps where I used to. I will weigh myself at the end."

"I really like where my body is going. My waist has never been smaller.”

Lake also claimed to not be a “natural dancer,” but she's just being modest. Aside from JR Martinez, it doesn't appear anyone can stop her this season.

Rob Kardashian may have been the night's most improved dancer, but Ricki Lake's flashy moves during the jive earned her the highest score of the night.

The Dancing With the Stars contender, who scored a 23 to lead the pack, is happy about that result - but even more pleased about her shrinking body.

Lake, who said she was inspired by former contestant Kirstie Alley's weight loss on DWTS last season, has already dropped 12 pounds and several sizes.

"I'm really getting in great shape," the talk show host said afterward. "I'll be wearing less and less clothing. The smaller I get, the less will be covered."
