HOWEVER, I've found that my hypo 'metabolism' is lower than if I had a 'normal' thyroid. That is, I need to eat less to maintain my weight even when I'm optimized on Rx. Apparently, while the Rx compensate well, there's no substitute for a healthy thyroid.
Thanks for the evaluation Leo. Guess I'll have to quit trying to blame my failures on my thyroid. Time to buckle down and do better.
