In brief: Euthyroid

If TSH is normal you are now euthyroid.
However there is a range of nl. It may help to be at the lower end of the range than the higher. It takes time for the body to adjust and you need to change your eating habits and increase exercise long term to get to lose weight.

In brief: Too many calories

If your TSH is normal, your problem is not likely an under active thyroid.
Most diets do not work long term . Behavior modification in dietary discretion and regular exercise are the healthy way to lose weight!
