I'm sympathetic: I assume you have been put on thyroid replacement medication which has been adjusted by your doctor so that your thyroid deficiency is now corrected? If not, do that first. Otherwise, reduce your caloric intake to 1000 calories a day and stay the course every single day. No giving up. No binging. Investigate high fiber, low calorie foods that are filling (ie, fruits and vegetables).
