Ricki Lake's Dramatic 'DWTS' Weight Loss 

Eugene Gologursky/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Fans may have noticed that there's a lot less of Ricki Lake to love on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.  The mother of two has burned off more than 20 pounds since she started preparing for the series at dance rehearsals with partner Derek Hough. 

Lake told, "They keep making my costumes smaller!  I've lost at least 15 inches and I feel great!"  Lake added, "I'm working so hard.  It's a challenge to really push my body, but it's so fun!" 

Lake said she has gone down three sizes since September, and will have a slim new look when her new syndicated talk show debuts in 2012. 

Lake explained, "I'm using muscles I wouldn't use in the gym or hiking, which is what I love to do.  Dancing doesn't feel like working out…even though I'm covered in sweat!"
