Hi Wendy

Divide the 181 by the 263 to give you the percent - (68.82%)subtract from 100 to give you the percent lost

You have lost 31% of your excess - and great fo you!!

Hi ... that seems low to me.  If her excess body weight is 102 lbs (263-161) and she has already lost 82 of thos pounds that would put her at about 80% of her excess body weight lost.  It seems that the 31% is closer to her total body weight lost.  Am I missing something?

You're right Dar. Since the excess was only just over a hundred, it's pretty much one pound = one percent.

263-161= 102 lbs of excess weight

You have lost  263-181= 82 lbs

82 of the excess 102 =80.3%    Pretty Awesome!!!!

LOL that's what I thought too...simple right LOL but then a few weeks ago I noticed someone had something in their siggy that they lost over 100% (I think it said something like 114%) of the excess weight and that had me wondering what they were talking about.
