Weight Confusion

From: blueeysx2 - 6 years 18 weeks ago

I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about 1.5 years ago. I am overweight regardless of how I eat and work out. I can lose a couple pounds but then it stalls for a while and then rises again. Shortly after diagnosis I became pregnant and weight was easy, I only gained 20 lbs as recommended due to my weight and lost weigh in early pregnancy, also by the time I arrived home from delivery, I was within 2 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight. By my 6 week PP appointment I had already regained 15 pounds, still eating the way that I did pregnant and nursing. My Synthroid was increased and though I feel better, nothing has changed on the weight.

I don't understand what is at play that weight was easy to lose/maintain while pregnant that is different now. Does anyone have any suggestions? My doctor is no help and insists that I eat more than I realize with an infant.
