How to stop out of control weight gain?

Hi all, I had the gastric sleeve in July 2016. Went from 285 and at my lowest 210. I was pleased with my progress. However, the last year has been a stressful and emotional year for me and I have gained 40 lbs in less than a year.

I cant get it under control! I try to eat better and work out and still gain weight. Everyone says its the stress but its sooo discouraging to see the scale go up and clothes dont fit.

Any help would be appreciated

Does anyone else experience horrible pelvic pain/bloat/nausea?

I’m seeing my PCP on Thursday, and lately I’ve been feeling completely exhausted but I’m up all night with the bloating and the pain, I’m not sure what to do anymore. Any advice? What do you all do for the pain? (I’ve read multiple articles saying that PCOS doesn’t cause pain)
