Quick question. I've been logging all my food intake and nutritional info manually in a small journal but would really like to switch over to a good app on my phone, one that would also include my exercise and weight journey. I know I could look this up myself but thought I'd post it on here to see what y'all use that works great for us fellow sleevers! Thanks in advance.

A metallic taste in the mouth could also be a sign that your body is in ketosis. Which isn't all beyond the realm of possibility, seeing as your sugars are drastically reduced and a lot of your culinary options starting out are sugar-free.< br>
As a birthday treat, I have some Decaf coffee from Starbucks. I've added some Atkins shake plus some GENEPRO (I know some people don't like Genepro, but I spent money on it and I WILL finish the bag.) It's SO yummy. I have been struggling with nausea for the past few days, unfortunately.
Thanks. I will have to look into this. Ketosis didn't even occur to me.

Yeah! I did Keto for awhile prior to getting surgery and would end up with a metallic taste. Of course, if you have any other symptoms alongside it - definitely go see a doctor :)

Keep it going - I did liquids in the day with a little Protein at night and then was scrupulous liquid the last 3 days before surgery . My stomach was Concave on day of surgery . I still lost 8 lbs in the 2 weeks . Just did surgery and dr was very pleased with prep, said it helped surgery and recovery tremendously. No one really spoke about that on here , maybe cuz they divide pre op and post op .i had surgery Thursday and the nurses were amazed at how much I could do one day out . I am on day 3 and feel ok but very tender . Hopefully this motivates you !! Good luck !

Yes, that's normal for post surgery. It can hurt a lot for a minute or two. It usually means you ate too much too fast. I am still learning so it happens a lot. Same happens if you drink to fast. I also get these pains randomly every once in a while. When that happens, it's a stomach spasm. It should calm down after a couple of weeks.

I also found that if I make sure I'm sitting up straight when I swallow, the discomfort goes away.

Vitamins will also give you that metallic taste

2 oz of warm chicken broth is my new best friend

I really don’t care about eating or drinking but know I have to get 64oz of liquid in today . Left hospital yesterday and that big Vitamin IV bag will start to dissipate in my system by Monday . Don’t want to go the dehydration route

One of the reasons I loathe Flintstones Complete and others of that ilk, bad enough to grind them, put them in applesauce or unsweet pineapple puree and then swallow them, but then you keep belching that taste up! 👅Yccch!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
