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.

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