This visual tries to show risk reduction in a way that reinforced positive benefits of work that has already been done by the patient.

This line graphic uses the separation between the straight and curved lines to show the change in risk due to weight loss. Callouts clearly present the "before" and "now" risk numbers. The (unlabeled) x-axis appears to be representing time, and thus the natural implication is that the risk reduction may grow larger as time progresses further.
