    Hello Terri,

    I don’t want to be overweight either. I don’t think anyone in this forum wants to be overweight but gaining weight when you need to gain it b/c you have lost it when you were hyperthyroid is not a want but a need. Being underweight is dangerous as Bobbi pointed out.

    I agree with all the other posts and gatorgirly has a point. You should talk to your endocrinologist or to your general Dr about seeing a dietitian or a nutritionist.

    There are people who were hyperthyroid and became euthyroid, who are in great shape (healthy weight). That should be everyone’s goal in this forum … to become euthyroid and maintain a healthy weigh for our height.

    I’m currently taking Methimazole and at my last appt I was hypothyroid and I have noticed that some of the weight is coming back. I’m afraid of becoming overweight but I don’t want to die, so I take my medication and I eat healthy (I have been eating healthy for a while b/c I also have Celiac Disease). I have started walking again and my goal is to continue doing so and to continue incorporating healthy exercise into my daily routine. If you don’t take care of your body, it will continue to give up on you and I doubt you want that.

    I hope our posts help you take the treatment you need and to look for healthy ways to maintain a healthy body and weight.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Caro :)
