I know I have to, but I don’t feel the slightest pleasure from eating anymore. I either feel full by the third bite, the food doesn’t agree with me or I end up puking cause I ate too fast (even though I thought I was pacing myself). It’s getting discouraging.

I am still going through this too. I'm really trying to embrace it instead of letting it get to me because more than likely, after this "honeymoon" period is over, I'll probably wish I still had this problem.

I literally just said this same thing a few days ago. I get absolutely no pleasure from eating anymore. Almost a necessary evil.

I kind of think of this as a good thing. It has helped me disengage from food emotionally.

enjoy it while it lasts - it will NEVER be easier to lose weight than it will right now, when you're almost never hungry and have no interest in food. All that will come back (hunger & appetite) - and then things will get a LOT more challenging.

You really really need to practice chewing and sipping as thoroughly and as slowly as you can.

Trial and error with things like Water, broth and tea etc.

Like.....room temp fluids makes me gag and nauseous but ice cold or very warm fluids are easy peasy.

Things get better with time. For quite a few months post op, I just didnt want to eat at all because it was such a process. After about 6 months post op, things started to get better. Still dont get a whole lot of pleasure out eating (which is a good thing. food should be nourishment, not comfort or happiness) but have now gotten used to it. It just doesn't bother me like it used too. You'll adjust.

I am 18 months out, 40 kilograms (88lbs) down and I am still uninterested in food. It's distressing to my husband because we used to eat out at restaurants quite a bit, and now there is no point, because I can only have 3 bites or so and then I am full or sick. It's also left me not interested in cooking either. With small taste testings along the way and the cooking smells, I am completely not wanting to eat anything when I have finished cooking. He hates eating by himself.

I don't have an answer, but it's not getting better for me. But I am still losing weight.. About 7kg now from goal.

I heartily wish I could have lost weight without the surgery, I wish I had thought more about what life would be like eating so little, and this was irreversible. Do I have regret? I get a lot of dumping (yes I know that sleeve pts are not supposed to suffer from it... But I do!) and I get a lot of nausea and dry retching. Yuk.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
