Is it stupid to start a diet right now?

Hey -
I have Hashi's and have been on 30 mg. Armour for 2 weeks (split into 2 doses). My labs (besides antibodies) are within range and she put me on b/c of symptoms: serious exhaustion, body aches, stupidity.
I have a call in to see if I can go up in meds. This is definitely too low a dose, even though I understand it takes a while to take effect.
Anyhoo, I am wondering if it's stupid of me to think about trying to lose weight? I never have been able to lose weight - low cal, low carb, IF, whatever...but I really, really, really WANT to lose weight.
I know I'll lose better if I'm optimized on my meds, but will it do any harm if I do something like JUDDD in the meantime?
I have no patience for this process!

I'd hold steady at maintenance until you get optimized

I'd worry about the length of time it can take to get optimized, and start now. We're all different though. I know it took about a year for me to get optimized and if I had decided to wait, I might never have started. I'm bad like that though.
