Work it, Missy!
Missy Elliott, who has debuted her weight loss many times in the past, was working it more then ever at the Alexander Wang for H&M launch event in New York City this Thursday. She stunned viewers by debuting her most drastic weight loss yet, a reported 70 pounds, and looked amazing as she performed her hits.
Missy, 43, revealed to People in 2011 that she was diagnosed with Graves disease, an auto immune disease that attacks the thyroid and can cause nervousness, excessive sweating, weight loss, and palpitations. Since then she has been staying out of the spotlight, but she was back and better then ever at the Wang event this week.
She seemed pretty happy, later tweeting out a picture of herself.

Missy attributes her new look to exercise and healthy living, although admits thyroid disease is something "you live with for the rest of your life."
