Ok so bit of back ground first.
I am 32 and have suffered from an under active thyroid for 2 years and they have been unable to stablise me and I am currently on 300mcg levothyroxine. I was referred over to endo but they cancelled and I am back on waiting list for appointment at end of April now.
Basically in 2 years I have gained a load of weight , I am 5 ft 6 and I weigh 16 stone 11lbs and it upsets me immensely. Doc put me on orlistat and my daily food routine is along lines of breakfast biscuits, soup for lunch and chicken, salad and rice of small amount of potato. I sometimes have fruit as snacks and I drink no added sugar squash. I won a years free membership to gym but it is so hard to go as I weigh a lot and I suffer slipped discs which doc said my weight isn't helping but I can't seem to lose the weight. I am on anti depressants as this is really getting to me. I am seeing doctor tomorrow and will be telling him all this but I wanted to see if anyone can give me any advice as what I should present to doc.
