I recall answering your question the other day - you need to go back down the list to see answers to your questions, but here is my answer again. The reason why you are struggling is a) due to the underactive thyroid and I agree that you need to take Eltroxin which is a thyroid hormone replacement - I can't comment about the Struma as this is probably a homeopathic product b) you need to use a well-balanced diet to lose your weight not all these dangerous fad diets and pills and potions. By now you have probably disrupted your metabolism with all this dieting and all these products and are caught in the yo-yo dieting cycle which makes it more and more difficult to lose weight.
To lose weight need to 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' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). While you are on the ‘Weight loss' site, read about every aspect of slimming (Diet pills, slimming aids, psychological aspects, etc) by surfing on this site.
I sincerely hope that you fall pregnant.
