Weight / BMI trend graphs?

eaylcr  May 31st 2006 at 08:12
Unsure if this is a request for a feature, or just that I havn\'t found it yet, but would it be possible to provide some graphics / summaries relating to items on the day menu, i.e. weight, BMI?

yes that should be possible what kind of stats would you like to see?

To be honest, all I was thinking about were simple graphs of weight vs time & bmi vs time.
Although perhaps with a smothed line rather than joining all points.

Oh yes, and the resting / standing heart rate vs time.

Just so I can see if any of this training is working :)

a tempory weight graph can be accessed by going to the week view and clicking on the \"weight\" label.

Just found the weight graph as well. Cool.

Thanks, thats the sort of thing I was thinking of, pitty its not going down as fast as I hoped :)
However, minor point, it only works under IE for me. Using Opera I don\'t see anything.

I haven\'t tested anything in opera, will have to look into that

As for my last post - how are you measuring BMI?
eaylcr  Jul 5th 2006 at 18:06
Cheapo set of scales from Argos from a couple of years back.
I tried the handheld one but it varied by over 5% in readings taken minutes apart.
With the scales it is a bit more consistent, maybe not accurate, but I only care about the trend :)
RichG  Jul 7th 2006 at 12:23
I\'m confused now, I know I\'m a little backward in these things but my scales are not particularly cheap but they only measure weight.... certainly not BMI.... am I missing something?

BMI can also be calculated using the following equation;

BMI = weight (kg)/[height(m) x height (m)]

Dave, can you set up an equation to work this out or have you done this already?

Well, I got them a while ago so may not be remembering the price correctly, they definitly look & feel cheap tho :)

Back on the subject of the graphs, is it possible to make it a best fit type of line rather than straight line please?
Just noticed that a sudden increase in weight this weekend has changed the graph from an overall downward to quite severe upward slope!

I love the weight and bodyfat graphs. I think they\'re fanstastic.
RichG  Jul 14th 2006 at 15:18
I don\'t like them... or more accurately I just don\'t like mine. Is there a way to invert them so that they go down rather than up?
Oziem  Jul 14th 2006 at 15:53
Yeah, try doing a handstand ;)

Really cool sight...thanks for putting in the hard work.

It would be cool if you could do a plot of the moving average of a persons weight (say over the previous 30 days or ideally an exponentially weighted moving average as described in the hackers diet ( http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet/www/hackdiet.html)).

If you need anymore info (I could probably even code it if neccessary) drop me a line.


Oziem  Oct 10th 2006 at 08:46
Yes I will look at this soon :D

I\'m getting near to finishing my phd now so will be able to start implementing all the suggestions soon!

I have had nearly a year off from TriBlogs - REALLY like the new site. Great Job.

As you might guess after a break weight is kinda important for me and I can't seem to get the temp weight graph that is mentioned earlier in this thread - is it still working?

Thanks in advance

Oziem  Oct 1st 2008 at 22:10

not implemented weight charts yet, you will have to login to the old site to see that in the meantime.

I too would like to see the weight chart back on the new site.

You should now be able to plot your weight on a graph in the charts section.
