Hi Suz,

I have the same problem too. First thing go to an endocrinologist and check your dosage is right. I am reading a book by Mary Shomon "Living well with hypothyroidism". Check your cholesterol and insulin resistance too. I just found that my insulin level is bit high and that is causing me not to lose weight. Good luck!
