Dancing With The Stars contestant Lauren Alaina has gone down 2 dress sizes in 3 months: ‘I’ve lost like 25 pounds… none of my clothes fit!’
Lauren Alaina has lost a lot of weight since she started competing on season 28 of Dancing With The Stars.
During an interview with several outlets this week, the 24-year-old singer shared the good news that she is down a size or two, according to People.
‘I’ve lost like 25 pounds! Since July. None of my clothes fit,’ the blonde beauty said. Gleb Savchenko, her professional partner on the ABC show, then cheekily said: ‘You’re welcome.’

The Georgia Peaches singer danced to the song The Other Side for a tribute to her late stepfather, who passed a year ago.
‘I was scared of the dance. I was sad,’ the beauty revealed.
‘I was proud that I could do it. I just was really nervous that I was going to get upset before the dance and not be able to do it, breathe, but I got through it, and then I lost it,’ she said.

‘I feel really proud because my stepdad was the most positive, uplifting, happy person I’ve ever met. And if he had been here tonight, he would’ve been the most proud of me,’ she added.
She began to tear up in the middle of the dance. But then she got back on track and pulled it off.
Alaina’s parents divorced in 2013. Her father is a recovering alcoholic and has been sober since October 2013.
