So it's almost two weeks since I had my 3rd fill and I've lost 11 pounds already. Is that too much too quickly or did I just not have enough restriction before? I have started working out so that may be contributing to it. I just want to be sure I'm doing it the right way. Thanks....

To be honest I don't think it is. I got my first fill last week and I started to work out this week and have lost 5lbs already. Our bodys are changing and we are speeding up our metabloism. I have been drinking more water and eating less since I started to work out. Just as long as you are getting your Protein in, I think you are good. Good Luck!

Well I sure wouldn't be complaining! :biggrin: It probably is the combination of more restriction and working out though. I recently (finally lol) started working out regularly and it was a helpful jump start ending the stall I'd been in.
I've had trouble with restriction (10 cc's in a 12 band) so really the only weight loss was the initial post-op. The restriction is much better now though and the working out really does make a difference!

It will slow down then you will wonder where it went, it is likely that your exercise is kicking it up a notch. Just make sure you are getting enough calories and protien and lots of water.

As long as you are able to eat without problems and get your calories and water in you should be fine.

Thanks guys! I'm trying to stick to around 800 cal. a day. I finally am able to use my WII Fit since my recent weight loss so I'm going to see how that goes tonight. : )
