Dear Nerri
I trust that you are receiving thyroid hormone supplementation in the form of Eltroxin or other thyroid hormone tablets. If you need to lose weight then reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for at least 30 min a day. Vigorous exercise will also stimulate your metabolism that may be sluggish because of the lack of thyroid hormone.
Best regards
