The returning eleventh-season Dancing with the Stars second runner-up, who will be appearing on the show's upcoming All-Stars edition, has set two main goals for herself when reflecting on her prior dancing experience. One of them is to at least maintain her current body shape.

"My goal [is] not to gain any weight," Palin told People.

"I think it's hurtful for any girl when someone's criticizing their weight on a national level. It's an awkward position."

In addition, Palin wants to take the competition "as serious as I took it last time," she added. "If I get voted off week one, then I get voted off week one. Hopefully I stick in there longer."

ABC recently announced the celebrity participants who will be gracing the ballroom in Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars, the show's fourteenth season, which will premiere Monday, September 24 at 8PM ET/PT.

 Palin, along with 11 other returning stars including Melissa Rycroft and Drew Lachey, were selected by Dancing with the Stars producers. An additional thirteenth celebrity will soon be determined by viewer voting.
