Eat well and exercise and you shouldn’t gain nearly as much, if any weight. I’m hypothyroid, so it’s impossible for me to lose an ounce, and I can gain at the drop of a hat. 

I don’t think it’ll be as bad as you think it’s going to as long as you watch yourself. Your body will get used to the medication eventually, so the water weight thing should hopefully go away!

Deep breaths!! I’m hypothyroid and very thin, even when unmedicated. The medication did not change my weight and it doesn’t have to change yours. It may make you retain water initially, but unless you’re eating more calories (or exercising less), your weight won’t just change from the pill.
