Hashimotos weight loss

Patient

Q: Okay so I have Hashimotos and Im on levothyroxine. Im lactose intolerant and Ive cut out everything dairy from my diet. I exercise for about an hour 5-6 days a week. I eat small portions and my daily meal routine looks a little like this:
Breakfast
1 small cup of coffee with splenda and natural sugar free flavoring
1 package of quaker sugar free oatmeal with one chopped bananna
Lunch
Either baby carrots, grapes, an apple, or watermellon
1 odawalla granola bar
Snack
Usually an apple, cashews, almonds, or pretzels
Dinner
. . . always differs. But I use a small "side" plate and dont get seconds
I drink about 8 cups of water a day (if not more)

Ive had to cut down my diet in order to not GAIN any more weight. I need help with losing weight! It seems to not be working for me at all. . . any helpful advice?
