width=300Sherri Shepherd took center stage on “The View” on Thursday to show off her new figure after months of diet and exercise.

Shepherd, the co-host of the popular ABC talk show, donned a black bathing suit and hit the cat walk in front of the audience to show that she lost five inches from her waist and 10 inches total from her body.

“I feel really great. I just wanted to show people that you don’t have to do anything crazy. You just have to make some choices and exercise and the weight will drop off. I hope some folks were inspired,” Shepherd said.

The comedian/actress took over for Star Jones as a permanent host of “The View” in 2007.

Shepherd has already been nominated twice for Outstanding Talk Show Host.
