In brief: Hypothyroid

The medication you are taking should have the underactive thyroid condition under control.
Your doc will periodically check whether the dose needs to be adjusted. If you are overweight, walking & other exercise may lower your weight, & thus alter how much med you need. Eat moderately from fruits, veggies, lean meats, seafood, whole grains. Follow up w/ doc regularly.
