In brief: Weight gain

It may be time to recheck your thyroid function levels.
Also, if you're taking thyroid hormone replacement, make sure that you take it first thing in the am, on an empty stomach, by itself. Wait at least half an hour before eating. Do not take it with other medications/vitamins/supplements.
