Weight control post TT

Im going a little crazy and really hoping someone can help shed some light.
I had a Full TT in August 08 after losing 130 pounds thanks to diet and exercise. I went from 260 down to 130ish on my own. Unfortunately I had a lot of skin hanging around and the majority on my stomach. So had a full TT. I gained 20 pounds with that surgery and was able to get 10 off but I cant get rid of these last 10 pounds no matter what I do and its situated in my belly. I work out and diet and my thighs and arms are getting smaller, but my stomach just gets bigger and Ive had a few people ask if Im pregnant because it bulges so much. If I take diuretics my stomach flattens out and I feel amazing, but within 3 days the wieghts all back and the bulge is back and I just feel blah. Is it something Im doing?? Or is this just normal for post TT
