Tomorrow when Lowcal posts the weekly weigh-in, she's invited us to also (or instead) state how much we've each lost during the whole of 2015. Look out for Lowcal's post first thing tomorrow - it will start something like 'Please join us for a weekly weigh-in'... - I'll add the link in here once it's up. So don't get excited and post your total weight loss here! Wait for Lowcal's post. I'll be collecting the stats as usual, but this time I think we should do something different with it.
So... in the meantime I'm collecting ideas for how to visualise this data once we've gathered it all in - a big pile of packets of butter? A graph showing how many people lost 1-10lbs, 11-20lbs, 21-30lbs etc? Please let me know your ideas and I will prepare a visual that reflects the sheer magnitude of all the weight we've collectively lost this year! 2015 was a big year for me - learning to run, losing over 2 stone, and getting my health back on track. I'm sure lots of people feel the same about 2015. So let's visualise it in a way that sets the tone for 2016, and also shows all the newbies joining with their new years resolutions exactly what can be achieved!
Ideas suggested so far -
Packets of butter/sugar
A large animal/animals
Bags of cement
Birds/buzzards flying away
Each pound's worth in calories enough to feed 3 starving children for a day
Plus... How many people have reached goal, maintained and for how long
