No weight loss: You may not be losing weight because you are gaining muscle mass. Remember, a pound of muscle weights the same as a pound of fat and that you are gaining muscle mass due to your exercise. Other factors that would keep you from losing weight is fluid retention and a dose of eltroxin that is not high enough to make you euthyroid. Speak to you doctor about you case for more information.
