How do I compare relative weight loss?

After I received the 'time to lose weight or else' talk from my Doctor, a co-worker suggested a healthy weight loss/lower our blood pressure competition. How best to compare the relative weight losses of a guy who only needs to drop 40 pounds (my co-worker, of course) and the guy who needs to drop the equivalent of a Backstreet Boy? (More inside, like the inside of a delicious Snickers Bar... mmm, Snickers....)

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in weighting (oh, so funny) a competition like this. Since he needs to lose 40 and I need to lose 120, would a three to one reference be a good point, or should I be thinking overall percentages?
