    Unhappy Gained Weight dua to Hormones

    Hello Guys I am interested in some help and guidance:
    abit about myself:
    I am 24 years old, I am working since the age of 15, back then I started my weight loss journey as a 170 kilograms or around 350 Pound obese,
    in about a year I lost 91 Kilos,(around 180 pounds),
    Since then I have followed a stricked diet and Workout,
    I am a tall guy, 190 CM (6"2) and from the age of 16 to 20 I gained around 30 Kilograms, Mainly Muscle and some fat since I started to get to the point of Underweight,
    in the Age if 20 I started my millitary service as a tank crewsman, I started my service around 110 kilos, lost 10 Kilos in my basic training and then gained back the weight dua to stress,
    I Finished my millitary service half a year ago, around 107 Kilograms.
    since then I went back to my workout and eating right, but some how I started to gain weight, after half a year I added 15 kilos which is insane, even in my fattest days I gained 10 kilos per year.
    I went to my doctor and he sent me to blood test, the results indicated that my TSH levels are very high which means my thyroid gland is under performing in my body,
    which leads to my metabolism being slower and me getting fatter,
    it explained alot of my problems in the past year or so of hair loss, being tired of all the time and gaining weight from eating nothing fat,
    he gave me hormones for my thyroid gland and said that I should feel a difference in around a month or.
    I am interested to hear people who suffered that aswell and want to hear their experiences and if after my TSH levels are back to normal ill be able to start losing my weight back.
    I am working out 3-4 times a weak and eat very clean and healthy, i have a very strickt diet so my calorie count is not the problem.

    I'm hypothyroid. The only difference I've notice with replacement therapy is decreased cold tolerance, which was not what I expected to happen. There was no change in my ability to gain/lose weight.
    Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?

    What kind of work do you do now? Transitioning from a naturally more active life/work situation like the military to a not as innately active situation can cause this.

    I know that when I graduated from college (where I did a lot of walking between classes and in my job) and started a desk job, I gained weight purely because of a decrease in NEAT (non-exercise activity).

    I didn't think I was overeating because I was not eating any additional food. But the fact that I was burning fewer calories meant I *was* overeating for my activity level.

    I was a tank Crewsman and later Logistic worker during my millitary service,
    I was very active during that time since I was working all day around my tank or inside of the storage, lifted alot of things and slept 6-9 hours per night,

    those days after I got released I workout 4 times a week at crossfit/Weightlifting, and I work as a security guard at a high tech company, 3/8 hours of the shift I have to take a patrol in the entire building which is around 3-4 Kilometers per shift

    I think we'd have to leave it up to a specialist to decide if you have a thyroid issue or similar problem. It could also just be down to a reduction in your daily calorie burn. I know you walk a lot but it still might be less activity than your previous job. Also, if you do shifts, it's not good for your body and we have some pretty compelling evidence that shift workers tend to overeat and gain weight more.

    I asked for the share of people who suffer from the same issue to share their experience,

    secondly before my millitary service I worked 3 years at shifts and I was my lowest in fat % and highest in muscle in my life

    Hypothyroidism generally will only cause a 5% increase in total body weight. 10-20 lbs

    Though, fixing it like you are with your doctor will give you more energy and make working out easier and with less fatigue less likely to crave carbs /food to fight exhaustion. Also, prob will be easier to gain muscle

    Eating clean and healthy doesn't mean you can't gain weight. I doubt your thyroid issue has much to do with it. You're taking in more calories than you burn on a weekly basis. "Slow metabolism" is just not enough daily movement
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
