With your reports you seem to be suffering from hypothyroidism that is decrease in circulating thyroid hormones. This leads to symptoms like lethargy, weakness, loss of appetite, depression etc. the treatment would be thyroid hormones and thats why you have been given eltroxine.
Apart from that small dietary changes in decreasing your fat intake and everyday compulsory walking for at least half an hour should help you..
Hope i have answered your query
