Ricki Lake has confessed that she hopes to slim down during her upcoming appearance on Dancing with the Stars.

The actress and chatshow host revealed that she has packed on several pounds since meeting now fiancé Christian Evans, who she began dating last summer.

However, while Lake seemed eager to shed weight while competing on the ABC competition series, she said that she would have to be careful not to fall into harmful diet and exercise patterns.

"I fell in love last year... I didn't gain a lot of weight but I feel like I could lose about 15 pounds. I'm going to be careful. It's going to be weird, because having dealt with weight issues my whole life, you think deprivation, starving yourself - but I can't do that if I'm dancing six hours a day," Lake explained to US Weekly.

"I'm just going to be really conscious of it. For the first time it won't be about the pounds, it'll be about strength and my body. I'm up for the challenge."

Lake recently said that she felt "inspired" by Kirstie Alley's appearance on Dancing with the Stars last season and hopes to follow in her footsteps.

Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, September 19 at 8/7c on ABC.
