Brief Answer:
Need to check your thyroid level on monthly basis

Detailed Answer:
I have studied your is very unusual to gain weight with high thyroid level. This is due to abnormal thyroid level. I would suggest you to check your thyroid level on monthly basis and dose changing accordingly.You should also avoid heavy fatty diet and sugar. Apart from thyroid abnormal estrogen hormone or steroids can also cause weight gain.You need to check if your oestrogen level is normal.
