I think that's a good message - if your medication is correct for your thyroid condition, then you should be able to lose weight like everyone else. But, a lot of people find that their low thyroid symptoms are still present even though the doctor says their test results are normal. That's when you need to really dig for more information (and perhaps a new doctor). If you're still not feeling well, and you're not able to lose weight despite a true effort, then you probably need a different combo or amount of thyroid meds. Don't just assume that because your test results are in the "normal" range that everything should be okay. It can be a lot more complicated than that.
