What is the secret?

What is the secret to losing weight? I have tried for many years to no avail. I have watched my weight gradually rise except for in the last 2 years it seemed to show up all at once. . I don't understand, I believe I do all the things I'm suppose to do, like cutting out soda's on the most part, cutting out fat, and just plain watching what I eat. I don't understand, I still wear the same size pants for the last 20+ yrs, so I don't get it. I asked my Dr. how it is that I have gained about 25 lbs in the last 2 hyrs and yet still wear the same size. He said my weight just re-distributed. What is that suppose to mean? I have tried many things for weightloss. Some very popular avenues but once again, nothing. I lost about 20 lbs on one popular program, however, it was very expensive to keep buying the prepackaged food and it just wasn't reality thus I discontinued the use and gained the weight back and then some. I have cut out numerous things that pack on the calories and even do more exercise than I did in my younger days and still no results. I just seem to maintain where I am at. My dr. has told me that I am a candidate for gastric bypass or one of those kinds of surgeries but I do not want to go that route. It's not for me. I have a friend that had the bypass done and she is limited on what she eats. I don't think I could live that way. I love food to much and I don't think I could let go of certain foods. So, what is there left to do? I have struggled for so long that I feel maybe I should just give in and pay the extraordinary amout of money to where I want to be. I'm not asking to be at a weight that models are, that's unrealistic, I want to be at a healthy weight so that I am able to do the things that I would like to do. I would like to be able to walk and climb stairs without my one knee and my feel hurting.
So there ya go. I was feeling kind of down and thought I would put my thoughts on here.
