Oct. 15, 2009— -- Tyra Banks has always been an advocate for women of all shapes and sizes.
After an unflattering picture of her in a bathing suit appeared in a tabloid magazine, Banks defended her fuller figure on her show, and even appeared on the cover of People magazine with the headline "You Call This Fat?"
But after dropping 30 pounds, the former supermodel was singing a different tune. She flaunted her new physique during a recent photo shoot in New York.
The 35-year-old Banks, who is now a slim size 6, gushed over her smaller figure on her show.
"I always feel great when I don't have clothes on," she said, admitting she might be "doing a little T.M.I. (Too Much Information)."
"When I told the world to kiss my fat ass, 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."
Apparently, she has tossed the bacon bits and ice cream and is once again triumphing over the scale. We just can't seem to get enough of stories like hers, says Lesley Kinzel, author of the blog Fatshionista.
