As someone who in the past was 220lbs and dropped to a steady weight of 160-165 after discovering my thyroid problem (without changing any habits,) I can tell you that you're wrong to assume it's just water weight with thyroid problems.
Only thing that sucks is I have a pill I have to take every morning for the rest of my life probably.
