In the App there is a Weight Goal Percentage which can be adjusted as needed under Patient Profile. So the way this works is that we use three different metrics to calculate the Goal Percentage:
- First Weight - required to know your progress
- Current Weight - required to know and update weight
- Goal Weight - required to know the goal to be reached
EXAMPLE #1: Let's say that you started at 160 lbs and are now 155 lbs but your goal is set to 150 lbs. This means that you are at 50% of your Goal.
EXAMPLE #2: As another EXAMPLE, let's say this time that you started at 180 lbs and are now you at 155 lbs but your goal is set to 150 lbs then you are at 83% of the way to your Goal Weight.
EXAMPLE #3: Opposite of the two above EXAMPLE situations, if your Goal is 155 lbs but the Goal Percentage is at 0% this means the starting weight was 173 lbs with a current weight of 184 lbs and thus weight was gained so it is accurate for this type of reason.
