A Thyroid Condition Makes Weight Loss for Molly Sims a Struggle

For Molly Sims, the transition from model to mom has been relatively easy. But for a woman who once graced the pages of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, getting her pre-baby body back presented more of a challenge.

“It’s been 19 months!” Sims told People while attending ELLE‘s Women in Television Celebration in Los Angeles. “It was hard work. It was hard work for almost 13, 14 months because of my thyroid issue, but once I knew what it was I got it under control.”

Sims suffered from a thyroid condition that led the first-time mom to gain almost 65 lbs. during her pregnancy and then, once son Brooks Alan was born, she became concerned about just how stubborn those additional pounds were. With medication, and a new view on diet and exercise, the 40-year-old stunner is back in fighting — or at least bikini — shape.
