Ricki Lake not only earned the highest score (23 out of 30) on Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars, there’s another number close to her heart  — 12. That’s the number of inches she’s lost off her frame in three weeks, thanks to ABC’s hit ballroom competition.

Lake — who could be heard grousing, “How did Kirstie Alley do this?” during rehearsals in a videotaped piece that aired Monday night on DWTS — looked light on her feet as she captured the night’s best score for her jive set to OutKast‘s “Hey Ya!” with pro partner Derek Hough.

“It’s a workout, and I’m having a great time, and I love my teacher and partner,” the talk show host said following her well-received set on Monday.

Lake, who’s engaged to Christian Evans, is shedding so much weight, she said she’s not even going to try on a wedding dress until she’s done dancing.
