Well looky who just showed up?

IF anyone is still checking in on me, I am a mess.  Literally...down in the dumps, gaining weight, and no solution in sight.

It has been 6 months since my lap-band was removed and I am fighting like hell against weight gain.  Every day the scales stays the same or goes up...it is not mathematically possible.  I know it's hard to believe a food addict, but i really am sticking to the plan.  I still work out 6-7 days per week (with approximately a 400 calorie burn) and eat around 1400-1600 calories.  Shouldn't something be happening??

To add to this, I went to see the surgeon who removed my lap-band to talk about the gastric sleeve and he had ABSOLUTELY nothing positive to say.  He just said why don't I stop worrying about counting calories and just eat intuitively. He has NO IDEA about the issues of a food addict. 

I have been researching "self-pay" options for the sleeve but I have been told it will be about $20,000.  There is NO way that my family can swing financing that.  I have even looked into going to Mexico but I don't think I am ready for that-- a little scary to me.

Ugh.  Any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.
