You are little over weight, since your BMI is 25, so its recommended to reduce 5-6 kgs, that weight may be due to your hypothyroidism, so better check your thyroid levels, if it is in control, go for diet modification and exercise. If hormone levels are not normal, consult your physician for change in doses, because hormonal irregularities may cause weight gain.
Go for walking 45 mins on alternate days, consume 8 - 10 glasses of water and dietary modification. consume more salads but avoid cabbage, cauliflour, broccoli, excess amount of wheat or barley which may again aggravate your thyroid problem. Better go for frequent small meals with simple walking, don't try for drastic weight reduction.
All t best, lead a healthy long life
