Please post your thyroid related test results and their reference ranges shown on the lab report so that members can better assess the adequacy of your testing and treatment.  Also, are you having any other symptoms besides the weight gain?  Was the cause for your being hypothyroid ever established?  The most common cause for diagnosed hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.  Have you ever been tested for the thyroid antibodies associated with Hashi's?  Those tests are TPO ab and TG ab.
