    Hi Emma ......... I hope I have got this right - you have lost 20lb - but wanted originally to lose 115 - 20 lost + 95 still to lose - therefore you multiply the 20lb lost by 100 and divide by the 115 which was your total you wanted to lose. This means you've lost 17% of the weight you want to lose.

    Hope this is right - and clear!!!!!!!!

    Hello Emmie Lou:


    Your start weight = 255 Ibs
    Your Goal Weight = 140 Ibs
    Your current weight = 235 Ibs (well done on the loss!)

    \ 255 - 140 = 115 Ibs (loss required to reach goal)

    \ 255 - 235 = 20 Ibs (your weight loss so far)

    \ 20 / 115 = 17.4 (1 d.p)

    THEREFORE:

    \ you are 17.4% of the way there :D

    OR
    \ you are 82.6% away from goal :D

    I hope that helps! ;)

    CC x :)

    Hi Emmie Lou

    Percentage of weightloss and to goal is a really good idea. I have to apply this myself so I can encourage myself further.

    Cah-ching - good calculations. I'm brain dead this morning and couldn't even think of a solution. I think I will set this up on a spreadsheet.

    Hmm ....

    ... using these calculations I am 77.5% of the way there, or 22.5% away from goal. That IS motivating!

    Exactly. It is very motivating. Not wishing to blow my own trumpet, but thats why I started the whole percentage thing. I've always had my weight loss as a percentage in my ticker.
