21-year-old former ‘Pretty Little Liars’ actress is opening up about the healthy pounds she dropped during ‘Dancing With the Stars’ after she had gained 70lbs due to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
Pieterse says during a pre-taped segment that aired before her dance on Monday night: “We’re halfway through the competition and I’ve lost 37 lbs. It really is magical. I’m feeling like me again. It’s not an easy road, but being able to focus on getting myself healthy again, and the fact that I’m seeing results, getting better is all I can ask for.”
She continues: “It was incredible. I knew that it was going to be amazing, but it totally blew my expectations away. I have had such an incredible time and I love everybody here, so obviously this is a very sad moment for me, but I’m juts so thankful. I’ve had an amazing experience and I’m so happy that I got to share my story.”
