In brief: Absolutely

Although many people feel less energetic when their thyroid gland is under-active, there is nothing about this condition that would prevent weight loss.
As long as you ensure that you are consuming less calories than you are burning, you should lose weight. Calorie counting apps are widely available for most smartphones. Talk to your family doctor about specific guidelines for weight management.
