Almost a year ago she was snapped at Bondi Beach in a bikini, showing off her more shapely figure.

But after dropping 26lbs with the aid of Pilates and a healthy diet, Lara Bingle revealed her newly svelte figure on Thursday.

The 25-year-old displayed her toned tummy in a pair of clingy black workout leggings and a sports bra after hitting the gym at Iceberg's in Sydney, Australia.

Earlier, the reality star had slipped into a black one-piece as she indulged in an early morning swim.

Lapping up the hot sun, Lara enjoyed a dip in the inviting pool with friends.

She was later seen topping up her tan at the water's edge as she chatted to her gal pals.

Lara opened about her weightloss in a recent interview with Australia's WHO magazine this month.

The reality star revealed that after being at her heaviest weight of 139lbs, she slimmed down with the aid of Pilates and smoothies and her boyfriend, fashion designer Gareth Moody, who was one of her biggest motivators.

She said that her beau of 13 months helped influence her new healthy lifestyle.

(I) got rid of everything that was weighing me down,' she said.

'I've learnt you've got to be consistent in your eating and training. Gareth's taught me that.'
