Are you being treated for your thyroid also?  If you don't treat your thyroid you will have a very hard time loosing weight.  

I was also told I had PCOS but after getting my dosage right with naturethroid many of my symptoms went away.

I agree that if you thyroid levels aren't good for you (not just in normal range), you will have a hard time losing weight, even with the met.

Please post your most current thyroid test results, along with reference ranges, so members can help assess your thyroid function.
