Something just occurred to me.
I complain about “only” losing 70#, but that is 28% of my starting body weight. Which is SIGNIFICANT. (250 x .28)
If you started at 300#, the equivalent is 84#. (300 x .28) 90# lost from 300 is 30%, which statistically not much more than my 28% loss.
So for me to reach an equivalent %, I will lose less, if you just look at the number of pounds. 75# will be my 30% mark (175# weight). Which is pretty fucking stellar IMO.
Perspective. It matters. :)
