My brother was over 400 lbs, and slowly worked his way down to around 350 over the last few years. Last year, he found out he had hypothyroid issues. He had issues with the medication, and quit it, but finally buckled down and lost 70 lbs in the last 5 months.
I thought that it would make it harder for him to lose, but they also told him different foods to eat, so maybe that helped enough. He was borderline I guess, and they said he might have problems for a year before putting him on the Synthroid. Now they test him, and he is in a good range.
Congrats on the weight loss.
