I have a question. Has anyone noticed that their sense of smell and taste is different? I feel like I am hypersensitive and smells make me nauseous Also some foods do not taste the same to me at all.

I am still having some trouble eating solids and they can come back up on me so it is really trial and error.

My preop weight was 217 the day of my surgery 8/30 I was 207 and today I am 180. I really like the lack of hunger but I do not enjoy food at all and also still have bad reflux despite the hiatal hernia repair? Any help or comments would be appreciated.

I used to be able to drink 2 or 3 of the large bottles of Water a day before surgery. Now I'm barely thirsty and HATE water. It is so weird. I tried every bottled water brand out there' date=' and can't stand any of them. The only thing I drink now are Protein Shakes and Vitamin Water Zero. And even then it is barely 1 of each a day. I miss my water.

I've never been keen on water but used to drink gallons of cherry diet coke. Now I can literally go hours without even thinking of drinking. Maybe it's because I can't drink fizzy drinks now. Having said that, while in hospital I was really nauseous and was becoming dehydrated until I bought myself some coke. I shook the bottles to reduce the fizz and was able to keep them down. Oh and ice lollies.

I'm the same way. I struggle to get all my fluids down. I'm just not thirsty and have no desire for Water or crystal light or anything

I do hope this eventually passes. Having to force myself to drink for the rest of my life is not a nice prospect.

Well, after the first few days my nausea subsided but about two days after being re-admitted to hospital it came back with a vengeance and I hardly ate anything for the 3 weeks I was there. I also couldn't even face fluids half the time and ended up on a drip. After coming home it eventually subsided but does come back intermittently. This morning, I had scrambled egg and really struggled to eat it as just looking at it made me feel sick. I really hope this eventually passes.

2 months today an feeling great starting 280 vsg day 247 an today 207 first month lost 32lbs 2nd month only 8 lbs. 8 don't sound like much but i am happy.

Slow and steady wins the race and also reduces the risk of baggy skin.

I'll be honest. It is not my long-term intention to diet. I despise diet foods. But my problem was portion size and this op has certainly changed that! I was a typical binge eater. Well, no more.

Hey Diamond, I was sleeved 8/6 too. we are sisters! Glad to meet you.

I'm down from 230 heavy wt, 221 day of surgery, to 183 this morning. I was feeling down because in 2 weeks I've only lost 2 lbs. my mind is screwing with me... So I tuned into VST for some encouragement and support. So glad to have this.

I have a huge list of things to be grateful for. Thanks everyone for being out there.

I'm not eating much, am good about using MFP to track, and sometimes I sit down to track because my mood is low and I'm sure I ate too much in that day, of course to find out that I didn't. My mind is really doing push ups to try and keep me sick in this battle. Deep breath. It's going to be ok.
