    They do it by percentage. So my doctor told me I would need to lose 5% of my weight in three months for him to continue. So I guess it would depend on your starting weight. 

    Weight x .05 = amount you need to lose to continue. 

    If 11 lbs is greater than that amount then you should be able to continue.
