Low TSH. Metabolism high in all areas except weight. What am I missing?

Despite eating a gluten free, junk free, very healthy diet..I still struggle with an inability to lose weight (50 lbs overweight) which makes me think my metabolism is low. BUT when it comes to alcohol, it's impossible for me to even feel buzzed. Which would be an indication of a high metabolism. Also, I've gotten several full strength Botox injections that only lasted about a week. The doctor who injected me said that my metabolism but be extremely high for my body to burn through so much Botox in such a short period of time. She also noted that she has never seen that before. My conclusion is there must be a missing piece to this puzzle. My metabolism is extremely high with the exception of how it manages weight. What could that missing piece be??
Background for reference: Diagnosed with Hashimoto's and Pap thyroid cancer. Total thyroidectomy was preformed 4 years ago. I'm on a high dose of Armour Thyroid (Have tried other brands as well. No change in weight). TSH stays below 1. All other labs are within the normal range.
