Is it possible to rewrite a line from write-host?

For example I want to display progress, but rewrite it with the updated progress, so display something like:-
Process ======== 27%

Then update it to:-
Process ========== 33%

Instead of having to put the write on individual lines:-
Process ======== 27%
Process ========== 33%

Hi,
instead of using Write-Host use the cmdlet
Write-Progress
