I have been Hypo for 20 years, thyroid just stopped working in my early 20's. First Make sure you are on the right dosage of medication. I was on Synroid 75 for years and was fine. Then in my late 30's I started feeling extremely fatigued again plus had started having severe IBS symptoms. When I went to get my levels check I kept being told I was normal (I was at 3.8) . Finally, I went to a different doctor and went up to the next dosage level 88. Every symptom I was having went away. Lots of Doctors are still using the old scale for checking your levels. I am now at 1.3 and feel fine.
Also you will gain weight easily and lose it S-L-O-W-L-Y. But you can lose. Stay away from sugar and process food. Also work on building muscle. I seem to have more success with doing more activities that increase my muscle mass and flexibilty rather than aerobic activity.
