Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Realizing that although I have had major surgery, I still have no control of my scale

Following any specific plan: Low carb/Liquid protein

Anything else you would like to share with us: Before WLS in 2012, I struggled with weight all of my adult life. I was under the false belief that I would lose weight effortlessly with WLS. After my first 4-5 months, I hit a major slowdown. What happened to the "honeymoon" period? I guess mine was awfully short. I am a perfect case of 100% compliance with the plan that my surgeon set forth, exercising 5-6 times per week, with minimal results at this point. I won't give up. I will go back on liquid protein diet (the same required pre-op) until I reach my goal. I am tired of weight defining who I am. I know that I can maintain once I reach my goal. I am mentally prepared for maintenance. I refuse to ensure another heavy summer where I cannot go to the beach with my family. Drastic measures!!!
