In brief: Diet and exercise

A healthy diet and exercise and taking your thyroid hormone replacement as recommended by your doctor. Normal thyroid hormone levels will help you to no continue to gain weight by stimulating your metabolism to normal rate, but without diet and exercise you will not lose the excessive weight.
