You are obese as well as hypothyroid, first divide your food portions like 3 major and 3minor feeds with avoiding oily and fatty items. Go for regular walking atleast once a day 45_60mts, relieve the stress by doing some meditation and if possible yoga. If you are on thyroid medication 25 Mcg of thyroxine will help, take on empty stomach in the morning. All the best.
