missy elliot before and after

Ok. If the “YOU CAN’T WORKOUT WITH US” cap wasn’t hint enough, Missy Elliott’s new look should let you know that she’s seriously on her fitness game right now. The super producer and “Work It” emcee recently posted a new photo to Twitter that shows her looking healthy, happy and according to reports from the Daily Mail, about 70 pounds slimmer.

Elliott ripped the runway earlier this week performing a collection of hits at Alexander Wang’s H&M Collection launch in New York City.

“‘My thyroid is functioning, so I haven’t had to take medication in about nine months,” Elliott said. “[But] you live with it for the rest of your life.”

The “it” is Graves’ disease, an incurable thyroid condition that the now 43-year-old artist was diagnosed with back in 2008. Elliott went public with her illness in 2011, revealing to People magazine, “I couldn’t write because my nervous system was so bad – I couldn’t even use a pen.”

A consistent regimen of exercise and monitoring her diet, Elliott says, is how she completely manages the disease.
