(Newser) – Count Nancy Grace among the Dancing With the Stars contestants who have lost weight, People reports. But she's nervous too: "My nerves are much, much worse," the CNN host said at a Power of Women Event in Beverly Hills on Friday. "I'm a fish out of water on the dance floor. It's a lot more nerve wracking than trying a murder case." Still, it has an upside: "If you would have told me five to seven hours of dance practice was fun, I would have never believed you," she said, "but it is."

As for the weight loss, she has "inadvertently lost 10 lbs. on the I'm-too-tired-to-eat diet," she said. "By the time I get the children [3-year-old twins Lucy and John David] ready for school, then practice and then come home, I'm like exhausted."
