I really didn't notice until another poster brought this to my attention. My goal weight is 150--I started out at 185. I am now 158 shouldn't my percentage lost be 94% ???? It reads 77%.

Lemme see. You've lost 27 pounds out of an intended 35. 27 over 35, multiplied by 100...According to my calculator that comes out at....77%.

Well done on the 27 pounds.

Thanks Rosebud--I guess I was looking at it this way--150 pounds for goal divided by 158 which is the present weight=94%. Like I said, I wouldn't have noticed it unless someone else mentioned it.

27 pounds gone is 27 pounds gone or should I say 108 sticks of butter???
Thanks!
