In brief: Yes...but

You need a multi-tier approach: dietary changes, behavior modifications, increasing exercise, avoid drugs that can cause weight gain.
.. To lose weight successfully, you need a whole-body approach.

In brief: Of course!

Sounds like you have taken the first step - you are ready to change.
.. - look on asbp.Org and search for a local bariatric physician/ office that can assist you with screening for metabolic issues, work with you to set up meal planning/ advised exercise goals and medication to assist if needed. - you are now ready for step 2 = action..And behavior changes can be a part of that plan..... Good luck!

In brief: Yes

Fat could be food allergy - find out food that are allergic, help support pancreas with chromium and support adrenals in addition do behavior therapy.
If you love your body now you will love your body when it it then - accept where u are then the body will reflect your love by changing.
