I am 67 years old, 5'2" and weigh 197. I take 100 mcg of synthroid, (thyroxine) 50 mg of hyzaar, and 81 baby aspirin. How can I lose weight? I am miserable!

In brief: Difficult

I agree that it is very difficult.
Your reasonable goal should be 20 pounds over 6 months. The most successful people join a support group like weight watchers or tops. Good luck! stay with it - it's a long haul.
