In brief: Possibly

An underactive thyroid gland may indeed lead to difficulty losing body fat (weight).
With proper thyroid replacement and achieving optimal levels of your thyroid hormones, you may notice increased weight loss. However, it is critical to optimize nutrition and exercise if you want to achieve and maintain your weight loss goals.
