Tyra flaunts sexy new body!!!

 Can you say hott mamacita!!!

Two years after telling the paparazzi and the world to "kiss her fat a--" when an unflattering bathing suit photo took the Internet by storm, Tyra Banks proudly showed off her new, more streamlined figure in a New York City photo shoot Monday. The supermodel turned actress turned TV host, famous for championing "real beauty," has reportedly gone from a size 16 or 14 to a size 8.

I have went down to a size 9 from a 14 so I commend Tyra who helped me on my weight loss journey!!!

Two weeks ago, Banks talked about her weight loss with CNN's Larry King:

"When I told the world to kiss my fat a--, I remained that size for two years. I maintained it with my ice cream and my salad with ranch dressing and croutons and bacon bits."

Tyra also explained to Larry how she got the idea and motivation to lose the weight -- she started a weight-loss challenge with her "America's Next Top Model" staff members:

"We were sitting around a table and kind of trash talking," Banks said. "And decided to do this challenge because we all love food. I trash talked so much where I had to win -- and I did."

Tyra remains a champion of different types of beauty -- this season, "Top Model" features contestants under the traditional modeling height minimum of 5'7".

She is truly an inspiration to ALL WOMEN!!!
