Welcome to HCM
You are having hypothyroidism for last 10 years it is good you take medicines regularly it is very important,but when you checked for thyroid function as dose may be low and needs adjustment according to TSH level,if not done get Free T3,Free T4 and TSH level.
It is not true thyroid patients put on weight please take up some form aerobic exercise regularly may be jogging ,cycling,swiming.
Just avoid fatty foods and high calories in the form of Pizza,tea,cofee,chocolate etc if find difficult take help of dietition.
