thanks for choosing health care magic.See weight loss is a complex can blame any single factor for this.If your thyroid is under control then you should look for other causes.Anti depressant drugs has got some tendency to increase weight but you can blame them alone.Take advise of your doctor and as per his advise do your exercise and meal planning.You can take help of dietitian for some time.Weigh loss needs continuous motivation and untiring efforts.You will definitely loose weight as you wake and you are trying sincerely.Just keep it up.
