Hi all,
Has anyone ever worked out what % of the starting weight they have lost?

I find it really motivating, and it really makes me super happy, when I think of my weight loss in those terms.

As at today, I've lost 25% or, which I think sounds better, 1/4 , of my starting weight. woo hoo!

And by the time I get to goal, I would have lost 1/3 of my starting weight.

Oh, actually now I see it listed on my user profile thingy - silly me - could have saved my hubbie the time in working out the formula for me!

I've made a spreadsheet of my % losses for every week, as well as all kinds of measurements, I love looking at it - several times a day!

The formula is

((((x/y)*100)-100)*(-1))/100

x = your current weight
y = your starting weight

Yeh, you are right. It is very confidence boosting to look at these stats as well as taking your measurements weekly. It all helps keep us on the right track.
