Larger than Life

Hey there, Sylvester McMonkey McBean, here's my star machine!

It's HUGE! I decided to add stars for pounds lost. I like me some big motivators. I could only fit 7 starts to a row, so I had to make it 16 rows long. It goes from ceiling to floor, and will be let out a little at a time as I add stars for pounds lost. Each star has my current weight written on it to the nearest pound. Right now I weight 275.8, so the "275" star is up. Any fraction of a pound my scale reports gets dropped to report the weight in whole pounds. It's a little weird, because it looks like I've lost 11 pounds, but you cant count the first star which is my starting weight, and since I am rounding down, it's slightly over-reporting. Only 9.2 pounds lost actually, but I like looking at the stars.

    The big question is... Are you going to monkey with it if you gain weight back? That is the main reason I chose to take stars down, once they were down they were down.

    That's sweet! I love the idea. I made a paperclip chain for my weightloss. Used the pretty coloured ones. I still have it around here somewhere but I'm not going to go looking for it... I'd have to take some off and that would kill me.
    I look forward to seeing more pictures with more stars!
