Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
What you have is hypothyroidism.
In hypothyroidism there will be increase in your weight.
Hypothyroidism is a life long disorder and you will have to take tablets lifelong.
The weight loss will be difficult but it will definitely happen with proper diet and exercise. 
Consult a dietician in person for a detailed diet chart.
