Is it possible to lose weight with hypothyroidism? Yes it is. Let me start by telling you about my situation. I was diagnosed at the age of nineteen with a hypoactive thyroid. Prior to finding out my diagnosis, I managed to gain approximately forty pounds. I believed that once my thyroid levels were back to normal then the weight would go back to normal as well. If you have a hypoactive thyroid then you are well aware of the fact that the weight doesn't just disappear. In fact, it is more difficult than ever to lose weight. Well it took me over twenty years to figure out what I had been doing wrong, but I managed to lose the weight that I wanted. Now I want to help you. The following points are some key things to consider when planning to lose weight.

Get your thyroid levels rechecked. The guidelines for thyroid levels have changed and you may need more medication. If you do fall within the updated range and your doctor doesn't feel you need to adjust your medication, talk to him about how you are feeling. He may be willing to change it based on your energy level and other symptoms. Also, let him know that you want to lose weight and that you are having a difficult time with it. He may be willing to change your dosage for a certain amount of time so that you can have more energy and a higher metabolism.
Make sure that you are taking your medication correctly. You must not eat or drink anything besides water for two hours before and one hour after you take your medication. You also should avoid any calcium containing products or products like antacids around the time that you will be taking your medication. The reason for this is that the medication will bind to things that you consume, especially calcium, and the medication will not make it into the bloodstream as it should.
Check other prescriptions for side effects. Some medications have the side effect weight gain. If you find that any of your other medications have this side effect, ask your doctor if there is an alternative that does not have this side effect.
Optimize your metabolism. There are things that you can do to optimize your metabolism. One example is exercising in the morning instead of the evening. Doing this will start your metabolism up earlier in the day and will keep it burning all day long. Another example is eating smaller meals more frequently and eating more fibrous foods. You will keep your digestive system running all day long and you won't convert foods to fat as much. There are certain foods that can cause your body to burn more calories as well, for example, spicy foods.

There are many resources available to you that will increase your chances of being successful at losing weight. Is it possible to lose weight with hypothyroidism? Yes it is possible. You just need to make sure that you have the right tools and you can be as successful at losing weight as I was.
