In brief: No effect expected

Shots of vitamins b6, b12, or other vitamins should not have an effect on one's weight.
The only way for a normal, overweight person to lose weight is to eat fewer calories than he uses up each day. His body will burn up fat to get the additional needed calories that he himself is not eating.

In brief: B12 weight loss

Many weight loss programs use vitamin shots during a supervised medical program to help with energy.
Many people eat when they are tired to help increase their energy levels. Studies show that 30-40% of people in a weight loss program due have lower levels of B12 and this can help them.
