    ~ doesn't think she'll ever reach her original weight, no matter HOW hard she tries. Hell, let's face it, 8lb 10oz is not very realistic is it?

    Take the number of pounds you have lost and divide it by your original weight and multiply that by 100:

    {(278-238)/278}100--> {(40)/278)}100 --> {(.14)}100= 14% so far!

    Nuerorat is right on the formula for % of weight loss but if you want to measure how much of your excess weight is gone you take the amt lost and divide by the amount of weight it will take to get to your goal. I.E. I have lost 70 out of 200 so 70/200=.35 x 100 = 35% of my excess weight is gone. They predict you will lose 60% in 6-9 months.

    Wow! All this time I've been depressed that I wasn't losing like I should. Although it's been a struggle, I've lost 81% of my excess weight (Dr. recommendations) in 8.5 months. Makes me feel so much better! Thanks!

    My NUT uses this formula to calculate the % of excess weight I have lost.

    (Weight on the first day seeing the surgeon - current weight)/(Weight on the first day seeing the surgeon - weight when BMI is 25)*100

    E.g. Weight 200 when you start this journel and weight 150 now. The weight for 25 BMI is 125.

    The % of excess weightloss is (200-150)/(200-125)*100 = 67% excess weight
    (Goal!!! Maintenance Lane!)


    • Reduce calories intake for weightloss.
    • Exercise for heart health, mental health and weight maintenance.
    • Make realistic goals.
    • Never give up.
