Apparently, Amber lost a great deal of weight right before she appeared in the Dancing With the Stars. Her secret was pretty simple: regularly exercising and sticking with her diet and workout regimen. Here’s what she said regarding her weight loss. “I’ve always been comfortable with my size,” Amber said. “I just decided it was time to get healthy.”

Of course, dancing greatly helped her reduce weight. “I think it’s amazing that I’m doing something positive,” she said. “And I did something just because I wanted to learn how to dance just because I wanted to work out, you know what I mean? I wanted to be healthy. It was kind of a selfish reason.”
