I think that you would benefit from a referral to a Registered Dietitian who is qualified to take your specific health issues into account. Your Dr will be able to refer you. In the meantime, weigh all of your food and enter it all into the Nutrition Tracker. Then when you go to the Dietitian, take some printouts with you so that she can see exactly what you are eating and how much. I know that that proved to be a 'life-saver' for me. My Dietitian was able to figure out the reason I wasn't losing weight, and I haven't looked back since. I reached my goal and have been maintaining for nearly 3 years.

Good luck,
Kris

I have an underactive thyroid and take medication as well. One thing that comes to mind-- what is your eating like? Especially since you mentioned vegetarian-- how much protein are you getting? Are you eating a lot of processed food? How about sugar, white flour, junk food etc? And as contrary as it sounds, I feel more energetic when I do more exercise.... even if before I do it, I feel tired. Sometimes I just have to drag myself up and get started. But it's really made a difference in my energy level overall.

Personally, I would look into the drug Armour and discuss it with a doctor.

I have had an underactive thyroid for many years and slowly had levothyroxine increased. Although the Dr says the range I am in is normal and has been for the past couple of years, I still cannot lose weight. I lose, gain, lose, gain. I still get tired (not as tired as before taking the tablets) and would like more energy. I exercise on and off (because of lack of energy).
I don't know if I could change from levothyroxine to something else (I live in the UK) and haven't even thought of asking my Dr to change it.
If anyone out there (in the UK) has changed from levothyroxine to another medicine and had success losing weight and/or having more energy, I would really appreciate hearing from you.
I would also like to hear from vegetarians who have an underactive thyroid and have successfully lost weight.
Many thanks for any help.
Kind regards.
