Shrinking With the Stars: Melissa Gilbert Down to a Size 2 After DWTS

Half Pint? More like Quarter Pint.

Melissa Gilbert started Dancing With the Stars Season 14 with a pretty rockin' body and she's leaving it on Week 8 having slimmed down even further.

"I don't know pounds [lost] but I went from a size 6 to a 2," Melissa told Us Weekly. "I have a 26 inch waist now."

Melissa turned 48 on May 8, the day she and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated. But there's a silver lining to not being around for the Week 9 Semifinals: "There was a revealing outfit coming up,” Melissa said, “so I wasn't going to get to eat this week and now I can!"

Chow down, girl!

In other Season 14 weight loss news, Gladys Knight said she left DWTS having lost 60 pounds and Kym Johnson said Jaleel White lost 13 pounds. Sounds like good health is getting its own Mirror Ball trophy!

Watch the next new episode of DWTS on Monday, May 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
