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.

Baritastic is amazing! You can tell it or scan labels it’s awesome!

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.

Warm helped me with a lot of my liquids this week. (Surgery 12/18)

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!

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
