One of the great things about this forum is the number of people who have "been there, done that." Drawing from that wisdom. I have been hovering around 10 pounds from goal for a month. Not eating anything I shouldn't but definitely eating more calories than when I was shedding pounds (between 1000-1200 instead of 400-600 with some indulgences.) So, I'm not gaining, just not losing. So, I am going back on my preop plan until I drop some pounds. Shakes and broth and two yogurts a day. My size 36 jeans are loose, so shooting for 179 and a 34 waist! Down from 270 and size 42 - and those were worn below the belly, not around the waist. Yes. I have a waist!
You might be better served just by sticking to lean proteins and smaller portions, since it seems like portion size is the culprit for you.

I am resetting back to basics as well after a weekend in NYC. I'm not going back to liquids, but just focusing on protein and trying to keep calories closer to 800 than 1000. I want to avoid going on crash cycles like before.
Also a nice hard workout does a lot for getting your head back in the game.
