I am desperate.
My goodness, thank you so much for taking the time to respond so thoroughly.
I have done some of the canned shakes, but have to watch the sodium and sugar levels in them.
Sorry to hear you're going through such a hard time right now. I had my share of health issues and like you needed to lose weight but couldn't/didn't want to eat. I'm finally at the point where I feel good, lost over 50 pounds. Still have a few bad days but many more good days than bad. You'll get through this! Now on the eating I make sure I eat about the same times every day. I use light wheat bread, light dressing and do eat a lot of salads. I add whatever meat I made for dinner to the top of the salad. Some days it could be chicken, a cheese burger, steak, pork tenderloin, whatever just to get the protein. I don't eat white bread, stay away from desserts, junk foods and fast food restaurant. On those WW meals, they are low in calories but way high in sodium so I stopped buying them. Lots of fruits and veggies in my menu now. I never eat after 8 pm...
On not being able to taste much did you ask the doctor, never heard that you lose your taste as you get older. Could be something else...Sounds like you also need to take time for you. A whole day for "just me time" would be good but if you can't at least try and find and hour in your day where you can do something just for you.
Hope things get better soon and hugs to you!
