"This has been a great side effect to dancing, so I'm happy… I'm feeling good,"  says Grace, 51. "But I just think women should love their bodies like they are."

Her partner Tristan McManus has also slimmed down.

"I've noticed Tristan has lost a lot of weight He really needed to. He was carrying way too many pounds around," she jokes.

But eventually, the talk show host caved with a smile, revealing she has shed 16 lbs. so far.
