I'm your age Congratulations on losing almost 3 stones so far!

I don't have experience with an under active thyroid, but I've read that it is not easy to get the weight off. Perhaps you could review your calorie intake to see if it helps with the weight loss? You sound as if you're quite active so I would be looking at the food consumed rather than the activity level.
