Tyra Banks had no problem fitting into her dress for a HarperÃ¢â¬â¢s Bazaar party held in her honor at Highbar in NYC on Sept. 3.
Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m still 160 pounds,Ã¢â¬Â Tyra said proudly. Ã¢â¬ÅI want to be healthy.Ã¢â¬Â
After an unflattering picture of the 5-foot-10 former supermodel on the beach surfaced in 2006, Tyra was attacked for packing on the pounds. But sheÃ¢â¬â¢s making sure there isnÃ¢â¬â¢t a repeat of that unfortunate incident. Ã¢â¬ÅI think my weightÃ¢â¬â¢s just redistributed,Ã¢â¬Â Tyra, 34, says of her curvy shape these days. Ã¢â¬ÅI kayak. I go to dance class. I run around a lot at Jackie OÃ¢â¬â¢s Reservoir [in NYCÃ¢â¬â¢s Central Park]. So IÃ¢â¬â¢ve been doing a lot of cross-training, but it hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t changed the number on the scale. IÃ¢â¬â¢m between 159 and 162.Ã¢â¬Â
And thatÃ¢â¬â¢s a number sheÃ¢â¬â¢s happy with. Ã¢â¬ÅI want to be fit,Ã¢â¬Â says Tyra. Ã¢â¬ÅAlways!Ã¢â¬Â
