Hello everyone. I love using this site and before using this, I would have a spreadsheet that I would track my weight and give me a graph similar to what we have here. One thing that I included, though, was a trending line that would basically give an expected target date.

I found this motivational when I saw this slip or draw closer. I just inquired about it to fatsecret, but want to see others take. I thought it was another nice device to have at my disposal.

I would love to see something like that. The more tools we have, the better. Smile

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

that would be really useful, as at the moment the estimated loss / week approach is all over the place if you weigh in regularly (as it only uses the previous sample).

What might work even better is an uppper and lower trendline bound over the dataset.
