Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Firstly, you have not mentioned your height and weight when your question itself is on WEIGHT!
Usually in hypothyroidism the weight increases which gradually comes down with treatment and peoper diet.
So your question becomes wrong.
Kindly consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. 
Your weight could be low due to something else and not hypothyroidism. 
Have a high protein diet.
Eat frequent meals.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
