Hang in there Agee. I'm with you on the slow ride.
It's not that the meds help with weight loss, but that your thyroid regulates metabolic function, and if you're not optimized on your medication, metabolic function is compromised. It's not something where you can get thyroid meds to use just for weight loss. If you're not in need of the medication, and take it anyway, there are many serious complications which can occur, not least of which is going hyperthyroid which can lead to heart problems.
