Default Body Temp?

A quick question for anyone who might have some input. . . I have been on IP for just over 3 months now, but my loss has slowed considerably (maybe a pound a week, sometimes none at all for the past month). I had been reading up on issues relating to metabolism, and there seems to be some research to support that a low body temp (1 or more degrees below normal) correlates to a low metabolism and/or a thyroid issue. I do have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, but I am actively receiving treatment. Out of curiosity, I have been taking my temps for the past 2 days. I am hovering around 97.5 or so. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Could this low body temp be somehow linked to my weight loss?
