Hi. Does anyone know what the orange figure is on my progress chart? I can’t work it out although I bet it’s a very obvious answer

    I'd like to help, but I'm not sure what you're referring to. Can you say something about what labels/words are around it, what page it's on, or even post a screen shot?

    On the iOS app (can’t speak for any other platform as that’s all I use) on the ‘Progress’ line graph there’s a small orange square with a number in it, at the right hand end of the graph line.

    I’ve wondered what it represents too but as the number is always slightly lower than my current progress weight I’ve figured it must be some sort of prediction of weight if the current trend is continued. 🤷‍♀️

    For example, my current weight is 8st 7lbs and the little orange box says ‘8.5’ (that could be just a different way to express eight and a half stone, of course, but the number hasn’t always been proportional to that form of numeric expression).

    I never close out my diary but I wonder if it’s a graph version of that ‘if every day were like today in 5 weeks you’d weigh....’.

    Would be about right at this point for me as I’m losing at about that speed! 2lbs in 5 weeks might be pretty accurate.

    Edit to add, because I’m an idiot:

    Having just gone and played around with the time span of my progress graph it’s now obvious that it is simply expressing 8st 7lbs as a decimal representation. The ‘Y’ axis of the graph clearly shows weight represented in that way, which I’d not noticed before. 🙄
