The thing about sun exposure is that latitude matters (I mentioned this in your other thread). I could spend an entire winter day nude in the sun at Seattle's latitude and not manufacture enough vitamin D to make up for the hypothermia (assuming a Seattle winter day that was sunny to begin with).

The OP mentions that one surprising thing was that the drop in metabolism appeared to be permanent. That actually makes sense to me, and I have to wonder whether there is also a drop in metabolism (a smaller one) if you lose the weight gradually. I think the best way to keep the weight off would be to assume there is.
