Dancing With the Stars' Niecy Nash has embraced her jiggles.
"As a size 10, I'm the biggest girl in this competition," the actress, 40, and mom of three (son Dominic, 18, and daughters Donielle, 15, and Dia, 10, with ex Don Nash) tells UsMagazine.com. "But I don't compare. I stay in my own lane."

To whittle down her middle, "[My partner] Louis [Van Amstel] made me start doing Pilates at L.A.'s Winsor Pilates two to three times a week to strengthen," says the 5-foot-3 Clean House star, who's replacing fried foods with salads, fish and chicken (but won't quit chocolate!).
"It's a lot of core work," continues Nash, who loves to work out to "Bootylicious" by Destiny's Child. (She and Van Amstel received an 18 out of 30 for their Monday night dance to "La Bamba.")

Her efforts are paying off.
Boasts Nash, who's dating electrical engineer Jay Tucker, 43: "I just went to a fitting and my gown had to be pulled in at the waist!"
