What percentage of you is now gone?
apierich posted:
There is a lot out there about how losing a certain percentage of your weight can decrease your odds of health issues. I think most of the adds talk about losing 5 or 10% if you're not going just for being skinny. When I started this journey I weighed 249lbs, I have been down now to 194 for a little bit. That means I have lost 55lbs. If I take 55 and divide it by 249 I have lost 22% of myself. 22%! My goal weight would mean I would have to lose 44% of myself, so I am halfway there!

What percentage of yourself have you lost so far? How much closer does that put you to your goal?

I think it's 33% if I calculated correctly. When I make it to goal that should be 43%! Go Team!

Good way of thinking ... I have lost 13.5% if I have calculated right.. but I didn't really lose it .. I got rid of it .. I have no intentions of ever going to look for it again... lol. By the time I finish I should have gotten rid of 33% of my body.

Only 15% of myself right now. It's still better than I've ever done before!

I love your response - got rid of it instead of lost it! I'm only at 9.25 % riddance but keepin on slow but steady!!

Yay Aprierich 50% down.

I lost 12%, It's a third not bad looking like that.

My goal is 36%. Two thirds still to get rid off !!!!
