    Go back to everything you were taught after your sleeve. Eat how you should, don't drink with meals, hydrate, take your vitamins, exercise, just do it. You may need to visit your nutritionist for a refresher course. Best of luck to you!

    I can imagine that you will have to cut down on calories, when you are not that active anymore.
    I know, that I will eat around 300 calories less on a day I don't get much exercise.
    I am a great believer in planning ahead.

    Sraebaer gives great advice and she knows what she is talking about.

    I am not far enough out, to give you advice, but going back to the basics always seems a sensible thing to do.
    And step on that scale on a regular basis, so that you won't get surprises you don't want.
    Good luck!
    English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    I'd say what Sraebaer said but I would also suggest going on a liquid diet for a few days to jumpstart it. (protein shakes) I would exercise in a way that you can...I do not know your physical limitations due to your knee surgery. I highly recommend adding strength training. It helps you burn more calories at rest. Just take it one day at a time and set small goals. Five lbs...then 5 more. Before you know it you will get there. If you say 40 it feels so far away and unobtainable. You got this.

    I wouldn’t suggest a liquid diet because you will binge afterwards. Eat lean meats, eggs, legumes, vegetables, nuts, dairy, one piece of fruit daily, avoid the terrible 4 white foods: no flour, no sugar, no white potatoes , no white rice, AND no carbonated drinks, and no fried foods. I would suggest buying the 21 Day Fix DVD set (30 min daily workouts that are doable) and walk 30 min a day. Good luck and Just remember the most powerful thing is a made up mind!!
