Missy Elliott has been looking svelte since she recorded her Under Construction album, but it turns out that she didn't stop shedding the weight. She reportedly lost 70 pounds then and after a recent performance, rumors were flying that she had lost another 70 pounds. In an attempt to set the record straight, she took to Twitter to share how much weight she's lost and how she's been managing her fitness journey.
"Didn't lose 70 pounds. That was during my Under Construction album," Missy wrote on Twitter. "This time I lost 30 eating healthy/work out to @ShaunTFitness T25 videos. I do the Insanity workout. Sweets/bread/fried foods is my weakness. It's not easy but health comes 1st."
Missy Elliott has been no joke about her health since being diagnosed with Graves disease, an autoimmune condition that leads to the over activity of the thyroid gland. After tweeting about her health progress, Shaun T replied to her message and the rapper started gushing about his fitness videos.
"@shauntfitness lol!!!!! I had to put a mousetrap in my sweet drawer so when I reach in there for a twix bar it will clamp my hand," she wrote.
"[A]nd yes i work out to ya tapes everyday! I already feel like u in the room wit me when u come up to the camera! Lol," she continued.
