    That's kinda the beauty of weight loss. The more you lose the more energy you get back. Avoid the coffee and drinks and kick-start things at the gym. You'll thank yourself for it........

    I know I still have a long way to go, but I'm a lot better off than I was 60 days ago! (And 45 pounds ago). This is a picture from a wedding I attended last night. I'm on the left, in the black dress. This surgery is the best thing I've ever done for myself!!

    i have the noises too and it sounds like hungry stomach growl fro pre-surgery but really its just noisy for its own reasons, not anything related to what it wants me to do. totally gratuitous noisage.

    First off everone is different and you can't compare what one person has lost to another. If you are losing and things are going well - then things are working for you.
    That being said...
    I am 90 Days out from surgery. I have lost an average of just over 4 lbs per week since surgery - some weeks more some weeks less.
    That's about 57 lbs since surgery and another 20 lbs lost pre-op from the pre-op diet for a total of 77 lbs.
    I've not been in the gym at all but have been more active (swimming, walking, kayaking, etc).
    As far as intake, my regular day is Greek yogurt, egg substitute or Protein shake for Breakfast, small Protein rich lunch (Soup and sashimi, burger - no bun, yogurt, etc) , small protein rich diner (chicken, pork, turkey, beef - all w/ veg) and usually a small snack (yogurt, fat free/sugar free pudding) . Chili has been good with Beans and made with turkey.
    Not many carbs if I can help it.
    I have not been perfect - I've had some pizza and a beer or two and I've indulged a few times when going out to dinner.
    Total daily calories usually add up to about 900-1100 on a normal day.

    I am going onto week 10. My usual day ( at work) consists of a mixture of greek yogurt and oatmeal (6 oz), Small fruit snack, home made chili (1/2 cup) have started substituting 200 cal lean cuisines for the chili, Small fruit snack, 4 oz of animal Protein and some veggys for dinner. I also should include 6 servings of half and half with the coffee I drink. This adds up to the 1200 cal range. I am currently down 77 lbs. Weekends are a little tougher controling what I eat. I do not drink alcohal, ever. I also try to get 10,000 step in aday logging with fit bit. I have found Water is the most important consumable. It has a lot to do with ones energy level.

    Hey guys, so glad I found this forum!
    I'm 3 weeks post-sleeve and have lost a total off 38 pounds, (13 pre-op, 25 since surgery)
    I am 33 years old, 6'2" and started at 381.
    How much weight did you guys lose each week on average your first few weeks and months? I just want to get realistic when I get on the scale, but I also want to make sure I'm getting the best results possible.
    What do you guys eat daily? I'm a little nervous because I feel like I am already eating at the top of my doctor recommendations and worried about old habits, but I'm eating soooooooooooooooo much less than ever before that also feels silly.
    I'm drinking one Protein Shake a day and then getting the rest of my Protein from mashed and puréed foods. (yogurt, white fish, tuna, hummus, Beans, eggs)
    I'm trying to only eat 3 oz of food in one sitting, but occasionally I get slower to 4, then other times I can only finish 2 (my dog is ecstatic at the amount of extra tuna she gets when I don't finish)
    Anyway, any feedback, stats and tips would be great! It's hard to find men who've gone through this!

    Lol. this doesn't go away. My Sleeve is the noisiest thing ever, especially after I eat or drink. I just tell everyone it loves food and is having a party. Sometimes it sounds like I'm hungry but I just ate.
    One day I was recording a Youtube video and my sleeve was SO LOUD for no reason. I stopped and I was like........DID YOU GUYS JUST HEAR THAT? lol.

    Hi, my tummy made noises every drink or bite from day 1, it is similar to an empty stomach growl but with the added bonus of bubble type noses traveling up the throat (not burps, wish I was burping back then), doesn't hurt, in fact the noises made me feel like it was relieving some the early uncomfortableness of eating new foods. Now that I am about 2 1/2 months out, my stomach only growls after difficult foods like chicken breast or if I eat too fast.
    Other than being embarrassed, feeling life my coworkers or strangers could hear my noises, the noises were not a big issue for me.
