So whatever you choose to do, do it more than 10 minutes.

Have you had your doctor check your thyroid levels lately? I have to have mine checked about every 2 months because it changes and we have to re-adjust medication.
I do take synthroid and do see my doctor on a regular basis. With the low dose I am on it does show normal counts. I will be stepping up the exercise and I think the strengthening excercises with free weights is helping me boost my metabolism. It's just not as fast as I want it to be .
