In brief: B12 weight loss
An issue with b12, which is easily correctable, and the ability to lose weight have never been directly connected.

In brief: Different mechanism
B12 deficiency is a sign of diet that is either deficient of the same or you have poor digestion.
People who are overweight tend to be sarcopenic - loss of essential muscle. Focus on fat burning metabolism with taking carnitine supplements and build your lean muscles with glutamine and resistance training. Watch my video on "sarcopenia and nutritional anemia" on youtube.
