Bristol Palin Says She Hasn't Lost Weight on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Bristol PalinUnlike many previous contestants on 'Dancing With the Stars,' the grueling training schedule and pressure of wearing skimpy outfits haven't caused Bristol Palin to lose weight.

According to The Huffington Post, Bristol said "I haven't really noticed a change in [my body] ... I think most people lose weight [on the show] because they're too stressed out to eat. I haven't had that problem!"

Despite mom Sarah Palin telling an audience earlier this week that Bristol's "way out of her element, out of her comfort zone" by being on the show, it doesn't seem to have translated to any body image problems for the 19-year-old. She says she doesn't weigh herself and hasn't noticed any changes to her body except that her legs are more toned.

Its just as well that she's happy in her body, as next week sees the "sexy dance" on the show, which usually means more revealing outfits. "I have to get into character," Bristol said. "Dressing sexy will help me get into character more. Next week, I'll be dressing sexy. This is it."

Other celebrities -- most famously Kelly Osbourne -- who've appeared on 'Dancing With the Stars' have lost a ton of weight, and stars like Jenny Garth have praised the weight-loss benefits of appearing on the show. During the firs tseason, finalist John O'Hurley became the poster boy for dancing and weight loss. However, Erin Andrews complained that she was "too thin" at the end of her run, and Niecy Nash said she didn't notice any difference in her body.

'Dancing With the Stars' airs Mon., 8PM ET on ABC.

Come on people! Bristol is NOT fat, nor is she pregnant. She's a lovely young lady who looks very healthy. Why all the nasty comments and name calling? It's rather childish don't you think? I'm not a fan of her mother, nor was I looking forward to seeing Bristol on DWTS, as she's not a star of any kind really. However, as it turn's out, I'm enjoying watching her and hope she stays on a long time.

Another article criticizing the Palins. All you haters are a sad, sickening, JEALOUS, bunch of do-nothing, know-nothing, heathens. Bristol will probably contribute more good to this country than any of you filthy pigs. Most of you worthless slobs can only sit at home, on your lazy,fat, rear ends, and demonstrate what a bunch of mindless nitwits you have become. Look in the mirror and see ALL the dirty, nasty, things you are referring to Bristol as being. What a despicable bunch of WORTHLESS swine !!

Russell, you couldn't have said it better! I applaud you for your tactfulness & sensibility in putting all the rude & crude people (like BRONCOSVA posted 10/09) in their places. What this article has to do with POLITICS, I cannot see. People should not judge a book by it's cover either. THANK YOU RUSSELL!

Do you think John McCain saw all this coming when he chose Sarah as a running mate?

Bristol Palin hasn't lost weight on DWTS! This is what you consider news? I'm sure The New York Times is just kicking itself for not running this story on page one!

I do not read these ridiculous types of articles but, saw the headline and had to comment. Who reads this drivel and who cares whether Bristol Palin lost weight dancing? The reporter who asked the question is an idiot, not to mention the assignment editor.

No wonder less than 50% of voting age American citizens, especially the young, cannot recognize a picture of the vice president, or Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Boehner or the governor of their own state. Much less name the member of Congress for their district, or their state senator or representative. Oh, but they WILL know whether some non important public figure lost weight dancing on a TV show.

So many people who vote do not know the issues, much less the names of the candidates. Registered voters are swayed by catchy phrases, outright lies told by one candidate against the other, subjective reporting or what candidate is better looking. Along with the privilege to vote comes the responsibility to research the issues and the positions of the candidates in order to cast an informed vote.

I'll bet not one of you spewing all the vitriol about Sarah could ever figure out how to "brand" yourselves into big bucks the way she has. And that is no small feat. Looks like she is not the "dummy" you thought, huh?
All that and beautiful too, which just makes you loser's despise her more............LOL
