Wondering what they mean???

Thinking green is optimum...does that mean blue is not good?

Thanks for any insight. Cool

The color of the bar on the weightloss ticker simply marks where you are in your journey based upon your start weight and your goal weight. It starts with red, then goes to orange, then yellow, blue and lastly green I believe. I cannot recall at what percentages the colors change (but I've been yellow forever!). It does not automatically determine if your weight is good or not, only your progress on your individual journey. For instance, someone who sets a goal to lose 20 pounds but would still be in the obese category after losing the 20 pounds still achieves a green bar once the 20 pounds is lost.

It's based on percentages between your starting weight and your goal, but I don't remember what they are. Blue is best- it means you're close to or at your goal. It's always fun when you post a new weight and the color changes - it means you've reached another milestone and you're one step closer to where you want to be!

The color changes just before 25 percent, 50 percent, 75 percent and about 95 percent to give you a blue 'maintenance' line. I'm trying hard to stay blue but it is a challenge!
