A Virtual Model for Weight Loss

Submitted by Adriana Rae on September 21, 2006 - 14:27.

Here is what I weigh now and what my heaviest weight was. Scroll on the 'start' and 'goal' buttons to see me at my starting and goal weight.

We've created this virtual model for people who are in the process of losing weight and want to show the stats on your web site (or on your own private iGoogle page). It's based on body mass index (BMI) calculations. The model will look different for women who weigh the same but are different heights.

Aside from your personal height and weight, you can customize the dress, hair and skin colors. If people like it, we'll be adding more options, including a male version and more hairstyles, face types and clothing styles.

New Dec. 2007: You can now see your model on your own personalized iGoogle page as well as being able to add it to your website sidebar.

Update:
How to Get the model to work for your Height/Weight
1) Click on the iGoogle link.
2) Click on the button "Add to Google"
3) Now you should see the virtual model. To customize it you need to go to the top right of the box and click on the little down arrow at the top there. This will enable you to 'edit settings' for your height and weight.

Hope you enjoy trying it out!
