    Take your pounds and divide by 100 and times by ten eg 169 divides to 1.69 and times 10 is 16.9 which taken away from start total rounds to 152 lbs.

    Right ok so I'm 157 lbs so 157~100= 1.57x10 = 15.7
    157-15.7 = 138.3 so I need to lose about 19lb to get to 10% goal?

    Is this right? And for 5% I assume it's just halved? Thanks

    You don't take it away from the total. 10% is simply that of your total start weight. So (as you already got) 157/100*10 = 15.7 which is rounded to 16lbs

    For 5% of that it would be 157/100*5 = 7.85 which is rounded to 8lbs (or halved!)
