She revealed this week that she's lost a staggering stone and a half during her stint so far on Dancing With The Stars.
And despite vowing to pile on a few pounds after dropping to a size six, Katherine Jenkins was more than happy to show off her svelte figure in a sleek dress last night.
The singer, 31, enjoyed a post-show dinner with her co-stars at upmarket restaurant STK in West Hollywood.

The soprano's figure-hugging strapless dress showed of her streamline silhouette, achieved through weeks of dance training for the US show.
Katherine was still sporting the bouncy curls and full-on make-up she wore for the results episode that aired last night.
She was joined by partner Mark Ballas following their easy progression to next week with a near-perfect score of 29, as well as Maria Menounos and Mark Ballas.

After working up an appetite performing their routines, the group indulged in hearty steak dinners.
Katherine told the Daily Mail this week that she has dropped to a UK size 6-8 (US size 2-4).
'I've lost a stone and a half,' she said. 'I'm burning so much energy now that it’s hard to put the weight back on.

'But I like to be curvy so I’m trying not
to lose any more. But I do want to be healthy, too – there are so many
skimpy costumes to wear. That scares me.'
She is clearly working hard to not lose any more though, with the singer tweeting a picture of three decadent desserts yesterday.
She wrote: 'The new Katherine Jenkins Diet Plan… #WhoSaysImNotEating #MumWouldBeSoProud.'
Safe: Maria Menounos was beaming after being successfully put through to the next week
Maria Menounos looked pretty in a maxi skirt, which covered the leg brace she was spotted wearing earlier in the day.
The Extra presenter has been suffering with severe pain in her legs and feet and has a stress fracture in one.
Last month, she suffered two cracked ribs during rehearsals, but has persevered through the pain.
