Missy Elliott Looks Like a Different Person After 70 Pound Weight Loss

Remember Missy Elliott? The extent of her dance moves in her music videos was bopping side to side because anything more would have brought on an asthma attack. Well, no more. Last Thursday, she tweeted this picture showing her weight loss. Apparently this was all due to a rare thyroid disease, Grave’s Disease, which Elliott has been battling naturally for over a year now.

‘I’m 30 pounds lighter because I’ve been exercising,’ she reveals. ‘My thyroid is functioning, so I haven’t had to take medication in about nine months. [But] you live with it for the rest of your life.’

One of the symptoms of Grave’s Disease is weight loss. Though that can be offset by the weight gain brought on by increased appetite stimulation. So it looks like Missy Elliott is preferring the latter these days and says she’s been managing the condition through diet and exercise.
