This is ridiculous... ever read the laws of Thermodynamics? First, look at the extremes; if you eat 1M Calories a day, you will gain weight. If you eat zero Calories a day, you will lose weight. (unless Rudolf Clausius was wrong, NOT), so somewhere between 1M an 0 Calories a day you will be able to maintain a healthy weight. Simple enough.
Sorry it doesn't work that way. I am one of those people with thyroid issues. Here is a case in point.

Late last year, I gained around 12-15 pounds over about a 4 week period. My diet was the same, my exercise was the same. The only "new" thing is that I was really busy, and probably a bit stressed. I only slept 5-6 hours a night during that period. Instant weight gain.

For me, I am 2 years into being diagnosed and still trying to hit the right levels.

For those of us with thyroid issues, before your levels get regulated, it can cause weight gain. And other annoying symptoms like low energy and tiredness that can impact your weight. It is really hard to get motivated to exercise if you can hardly keep your eyes open.

There are people with eating issues. And other people with biochemistry that messes them up completely.

People can be "fat" in a;; kinds of ways. And some people gain weight in a "lucky" way were is it concentrated in their breasts, hips and thighs. Others will gain only in their tummies. Others will gain all over. But weight isn't attractiveness. There are "thin" people who are not attractive. And thin people that are. Vice versa is true as well. And this is not to say that everyone has the same definition of fat.

Some people consider fat Kim Kardashian. Some say Jennifer Lopez is. Some say Mindy Khalin is. Other people say fat starts at Queen Latifah. And for someone else fat starts at Gabby Sidibe. There is no one definition of "fat."

Not for everyone though. Some people actually lose the curves when they become slimmer.
Me,I'm weird. I lose whatever I have up top,(the breasts) but gain curves on my lower body because the waist to hip ratio drops.

Some people don't realize just because you see a fat person doesn't mean that all of it is fat.
Some people are like me,with bigger skeletons. My bones are just bigger. My bone mass is 6.9.
The average for a woman is 4 to 6.
The average for a man is 7 to 9.
That's something I can't change,whether I lose weight or not. Unless someone can tell onee how to lose bone mass without getting osteoporosis.

Which is why I said a healthy amount of fat, not a healthy weight or healthy size. Excess body fat detracts from curves, rather than enhancing them.

My mom is like you. Well she gains a tiny bit up top. Mostly at the bottom. When she is her "normal" size, she is flat chested and pear shaped.

For all of the people that complain about fat people or call fat/overweight people ugly, etc there sure are a lot of men with fat wives/girlfriends as well as being fat themselves. Especially in the south, so many fat couples. Also in the midwest.

LMAO, fat is fat people, and the majority of the world outside the US doesn't find it appealing one bit

OP, not all women (and men) distribute weight the same. Not all women gain weight and automatically just get big breasts, big hips and a round J-Lo butt. Th majority of people put weight on in the stomach and thighs-neither of which is attractive.

Fat = unhealthy = unattractive. Why would this be so difficult to understand?

If you consume fewer calories than you burn (for the moment let's ignore water retention, as a simple diuretic can resolve that), then it is an undisputable fact that you will lose weight. Sorry, it does work that way. If it doesn't, will you get a patent on a perpetual motion machine?
You obviously did not adjust your caloric intake to compensate for a thyroid disorder. The Thermo laws still stand.
