... 137 MCM of Synthroid ever since. I'm 56 years old. I weighed 173 at the time of surgery. Today I wt 245. None of my Drs think it has anything to do with my thyroid medicine. I have been steadily gaining wt. my TSH is at .19. Every day I work at losing wt. sometimes after a week of working hard at it, I will actually be up a pound! I'm worried and hate that I've gained this weight. Any advise for me?
Counting calories can be very effective - it’s even more important than exercise when trying to lose weight. If you go to your doc and say I ate this many calories a day for a month and didn’t lose any weight, they may be inclined to believe something is up. They may not be wrong, it could have nothing to do with your thyroid. But if you count calories and nothing changes, there could be something else going on.
