Coming up on year 3

Crazy Dog Mom!
Wondering if anyone else has had this issue. I hit well below my goal and have maintained my loss for over a year now. I've tried to lose 5 more pounds and every time I go down about 3 pounds I stall , hard. I dropped my calories and my carbs, nothing. If my carbs creep even a little over 30, I gain the 3 pounds back but I'm can eat almost anything at 150 and maintain. I've been trying to get to 145 and I have hit 147 about 6 times just to bounce back. Should I jut work on maintenance for a while longer then try again or is my body trying to tell me something? I know it's just 5 pounds and it's a goal I set for myself. All my doctors feel my current weight is great and I am looking at plastic, I wanted to be at the lower weight before surgery.

Your body is probably saying...that’s enough.
If you are looking at plastics, work on your lab values not your weight.

lots of people seem to spend a lot of time trying to lose that last X number of pounds. I often think, but rarely say, maybe just call it good and be happy?
I agree with Jackie and southern lady. When you have the skin removed you will be at or under the weight you want to be.
