If it's true that patient stops losing weight after one year of gastric bypass surgery, can she still lose weight with diet and simple sports?

In brief: Yes

Diet and exercise are the mainstay for weight loss.
As long as the balance of calories in vs calories out is negative, then there will be weight loss. A gastric bypass surgery is only a tool to jumpstart a weight loss program. Any tool can be beaten. Continue for a lifetime with prudent, low-carb diet and daily exercise for ongoing weight loss and weight maintenance.
