Prior to her elimination last night on Dancing with the Stars, singer Gladys Knight accomplished something that makes her feel like a winner - she shed sixty pounds!

Gladys, 67, told People that she started a health regimen a short time before meeting with her dance partner Tristan McManus for their first practices. Since then, she has worked off the astonishing amount of weight by dancing and Freshology's Getslim with the Stars program.

"You've got to eat healthy and you've got to put a little movement into it," she said. 

Gladys, ironically, went home after Motown Week. She scored a 21 with her rumba and came in last place during a Motown Marathon dance. She then lost to Roshon Fegan in a dance duel, eliminating her from the competition.
