This piece was updated on February 12, 2018. Gigi Hadid put her body-shamers to, well, shame on Sunday in a series of tweets addressing speculation about her weight.  "For those of you so determined to come up w why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started @ 17 I was not yet diagnosed w/Hashimoto’s disease," Gigi wrote. "Those of u who called me 'too big for the industry' were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that." She said that since her diagnosis, she's been taking medication for her condition and has worked to adopt a healthier lifestyle. " For those of you so determined to come up w why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started @ 17 I was not yet diagnosed w/Hashimoto’s disease; those of u who called me “too big for the industry” were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that. — Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) February 11, 2018 Over the last few years I’ve been properly medicated to help symptoms including those, as well as extreme fatigue, metabolism issues, body’s ability to retain heat, etc ... I was also part of a holistic medical trial that helped my thyroid levels balance out. — Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) February 11, 2018 As for any concerns that she's deliberately making herself thin, she wrote: "I have always eaten the same, my body just handles it differently now that my health is better." And while she said that she finds this "skinny," not quite right for her, she added that she feels healthier and that she is "still learning and growing with my body everyday, as everyone is."  Although stress & excessive travel can also affect the body, I have always eaten the same, my body just handles it differently now that my health is better.

"Please, as social media users & human beings in general, learn to have more empathy for others and know that you never really know the whole story," she tweeted. "Use your energy to lift those that you admire rather than be cruel to those u don’t." I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone, with a body type that doesnt suit ur “beauty” expectation, shouldnt have to. Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing, stop putting me in that box just because u dont understand the way my body has matured. — Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) February 11, 2018 Please, as social media users & ...
