Gladys Knight: I Lost 60 Lbs. on Dancing with the Stars

Gladys Knight may not have won the mirror ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars, but she does have something to brag about – a slim new figure!

The soul singer, 67, says she started a health program shortly before partnering up with Tristan MacManus for the show, and since then, she’s shed a whopping 60 lbs.

“[Tristan] helped [by] wearing me out,” Knight told reporters with a laugh backstage after she was eliminated on Tuesday night, adding that Freshology’s Getslim with the Stars program helped her lose weight.

“You’ve got to eat healthy and you’ve got to put a little movement into it,” she says.
