Thanks for query,
Your weight is due to your hypothyroid stage.
As you are you are just after your delivery you should not be advised dieting.
Just avoid junk food ,extra sugar & unnecessary calorie in diet.
Your thyroid dosage will be controlled by your physician periodically.strictly follow it when you become euthyroid your weight will automatically loose.
