Need to gain weight

From: bigtypunt - 1 year 28 weeks ago

Hi I was diagnosed with Graves Disease 2 yrs ago. At the time I was hypo weighing at 195lbs. I was placed on methiamozole (don’t know the spelling). And i received radioactive iodine. After that I went down to 130lbs in 1 month. It was really fast. I only was able to gain 20lbs back. I want to know how if it’s possible to gain weight cause I want to be at 160 or 165lbs. That’s where I feel most comfortable. Right now I’m struggling to maintain 150lbs. No matter what I do I can’t get passed 150. And if I don’t eat enough my weight goes down under 150lbs. I know this might not seem to be a big problem to some people but it is to me. I look too skinny and I’m not happy with this weight. Can someone give me any suggestions. And also I can’t have dairy products so that’s not a option. Thanks
