There appears to be a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and obesity.  Here is study describing a temporal relationship.

While vitamin D deficiency is associated with obesity, "there are limited data on the temporal relationship between vitamin D and weight loss -- an important step in establishing a cause-effect link between vitamin D deficiency and obesity," Dr. Shalamar Sibley from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis told the conference.

She and colleagues investigated the temporal relationship between baseline vitamin D levels and subsequent weight loss success in 38 overweight and obese men and women.
