I have a thyroid disease and its hard for me to loss the weight. Mine is Hypothyroidism and it keeps getting worst as I get older. My doctor said the weight gain as not my fault and that it should come off by itself. What can I do to help it come off a little easier? I also Has Asthma so running is hard for me.

Do you believe what your doctor said about the weight "coming off by itself"? The majority of American adults are overweight...
Did the doctor say how long we have to wait?

Daily, brisk walking for 30 minutes, minimum, will help.

Yes because this happened in high school. All I changed really was I did a spring sport and it can off in a month
