Not sure this is clear -- are you saying you're thyroid is still hypo, or are you saying it was for a time? What this means is your endocrinologist isn't properly adjusting your medication. Also not clear -- were you put on this drug when you were hyperthyroid? If you were diagnosed with a condition that left you hyperthyroid and the treatment pushed you to hypothyroid, that could be your problem, but because you say this is a many years problem it's just hard to tell from your post where you're at currently with this. Obviously, if your thyroid is not being treated properly, or was improperly diagnosed, that could be the problem unless all that part of it happened a long time ago and isn't currently a problem. As for your diet, your so-called probiotics orange juice has no probiotics in it, most likely, they're probably dead -- long dead. Basically your breakfast is a glass of sugar. Your lunch has no balance, just bread (white bread?) and turkey. You don't say if you load on the veggies at dinner. All types of arthritis are a pain, but they don't respond very well if you're sedentary. Some form of exercise you can handle is better for arthritic conditions than not doing much. Your diet is also not an anti-inflammatory diet nor is it an immune system diet if you're not eating enough veggies and basically having a glass of sugar for breakfast. You're also taking a diet pill, but you hardly eat. Not eating doesn't necessarily lead to weight loss if what you eat doesn't give you the energy and health to move. Diet pills don't work unless they're speed, and even the theoretical function of them will only work is your thyroid is working well because when it isn't your adrenals will be off as well, your diet suits you and gives you sufficient nutrients, and you move as much as you're able. I wish I could be more helpful but when people like you and I have multiple problems going on and doctors who might not be doing their best for us, it can be very hard. A person you might contact hangs out on the weight loss forum, and is named Barb. She has been fighting the good fight with her thyroid for a long time and might be of some help to you.
