Losing weight as a vegan with hypothyroidism.

Hi there! I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism, which unfortunately runs rampantly in my family. I am currently on medication (levothyroxine, generic synthroid), and when I asked my doctor about this she said we'd have to wait and see how the medication goes and hope for the best. Anyway, as anyone familiar with this condition will know, people with an underactive thyroid often have an excruciatingly tough time losing weight. I am one of those people.

I am wondering if anyone here has any tips, advice and especially success stories for losing weight as a vegan with hypothyroidism. I would appreciate it so much.
