If you are trying to lose weight, here's a way to see your weight loss progress in a visual way.
It's a new iPhone app to help with people's weight loss goals.
We first developed this model almost three years ago as a google gadget. Lots of people have been using it and find it fun and motivational. Now we've added a few additional features and have created it as an iPhone app.
You can find it at the iPhone app store under Virtual Weight Loss Model.
You can see your weight loss progress with this virtual model. Customize it with your current weight, goal weight, heaviest weight and your height.
The model is based on body mass index (BMI) calculations. So it will look different for people who are different heights but who weigh the same. If people like it we'll be adding more options, including a male model.
Depending on your preference, you can input your personal data in pounds or kilograms, inches or centimeters.
You can customize your model's skin and hair color, shoe and dress color.
If you're one of the 40 million people who own an iPhone or an iPod Touch, please tell us what you think!
Here are some of the reviews for the initial Virtual Weight Loss Model gadget;
It is nice to have a visual goal - of seeing myself get thinner over time! Bonus thanks for such a cool tool!
This basic, blinking figure mirrors your journey to the perfect shape. It is preferable to a emotionless graph.
Virtual model -Good timing, I like it - when will have a male version?
cute - it's easy to use and a good bit of fun.
Very Cute - This is adorable.
