On Dec 7, I will be ONE year out. Started at 240... down to 143. I have been bouncing back and forth one pound for about 7 weeks now. I just can't get below 143! Here are my issues:
If you don't know how many carbs you are taking in, I would guess you aren't weighing/measuring your food and aren't tracking your intake. Those are the two big things I would start doing. Yes, it's a pain and it sucks . . . but it sounds like you need to do it, at least to get yourself out of this stall. You probably need to lower your carbs and your calories both, and knowing what you are taking in (precisely) will help you see where you can cut out certain foods, or substitute something else for them. Personally I would stay away from oranges, protein bars, and cheese sticks. Try adding more fiber in with lots of green veggies instead. I see absolutely zero green veggies in your list of foods, and that may be part of your poop problem.
Yogurt, especially all natural yogurt like Chobani, is good for your digestive tract, so I would keep that. Consider adding in the green veggies I mentioned, a little dried fruit, some berries (raspberries, blackberries), and black coffee. Exercise is fantastic for getting things moving as well. Even just walking will help!
Good luck to you on this last push! You can do it. I think being scared of regain is a good thing. It will help you avoid complacency and keep you working.
I'm so sorry you are having a hard time.
Have you had your blood work checked recently? I'm wondering if there is a vitamin or iron deficiency? I'd check with your doctor. It may be easily remedied.
In terms of diet, make sure you are meeting your protein needs. That's important. Also carbs can cause cravings, and aren't particularly good for nutrition. I found that I didn't have room for much more than my protein needs until I was 6-months post op. Then I added low carb veggies, not carbs.
I hope you feel better soon.

I'd switch yogurt! Chobani has about 19 grams of carbs vs. Dannon Light & Fit Greek that only has 9...also only has 80 calories vs. 120...there's a start!
