Ok will do :) not much I can clean up with my diet! I am gluten and dairy free -
Other than cheese! So good to go there :) and I have added a lot more lifting into the mix with my cardio. Less than a year ago I sat pretty steady bouncing between 175 and 180.. Then starting in mover member of this year I steadily have gained about 17 lbs.. If I can lose these 17 I will never be disappointed at 175 again :)
Just doesn't make sense that for 25 years I could maintain my weight fairly well.. Then BOOM!
I agree with Roman.
I'd leave things be for now.
I'd also work on improving diet (eating more whole foods/produce, no soda, no alcohol), perhaps add weight lifting to build muscle tissue, concentrate on reducing anxiety, get as much sleep as you can handle.... since any issues in these areas are going to keep you from your goals.
Don't worry about the TSH being too low at this point.
Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.

Your numbers actually look pretty good. The TSH is a bit low, but that could be due to many factors. How long have you been on the 180 of Armour? It can take 3 to 6 months for things to really kick in and get within range and get your body going in the right direction.

New test results:
Free t3: 3.4 out of 2.4-4.4
FT4: 1.07 out of .9-1.8
TSH: .007 out of .3-5.5
Should I be happy with this? Or ask for an increase? Energy is better- but weight is not coming off yet, still feel like I could feel a tad better? Thoughts?
