you need to get your thyroid hormone levels corrected with taking supplemental prescription thyroid hormone like levothyroxine until your TSH levels are between 0.3 and 3.0.

you also need to exercise and diet and cut your calories and over time you will loose weight.

how old are you?

what is your most recent TSH blood levels?

are you on thyroid hormone medication?

are you male or female?
