Do I lose control of the assets I put into my Living Trust?

Absolutely not. You keep full control. As trustee of your Living Trust, you can do everything and anything you could before including buying, selling, investing, gifting, etc. Nothing changes but the name on title to the assets of the Living Trust as they would be retitled in name of the Trust-creator as Trustee of the Living Trust.
