Congrats on your maintenance and glad youíve joined the team!

Thanks for the feedback on the maintenance tables and graphs. Youíve experienced glitches related to a few different causes.

1) Thanks for pointing out that the welcome email points to the old entry form. When I upgraded the maintenance anniversaries list to the new Google Forms I had to go around and change the link everywhere that it appeared. That was one Iíd missed. Iíve fixed it now.

2) Google Docs seem to slow down especially after 1-2pm Eastern time on weekdays. I suspect thatís when California is up and running and putting demands on their servers. Some of the charts have a lot of data in them and just plain take a long time to load anyway.

3) Google Spreadsheets seem to get stuck sometimes and not reload unless I twiddle them in odd ways. Iíve seen complaints from others about this on the internet, so Iím not the only one who has noticed. Itís always worth posting to the thread if youíre having problems viewing one of the graphs or tables - I can try twiddling the spreadsheet to force it to reload.

Until I find a better free option, I am grudgingly tolerating the second and third issues above. Considering itís put together for free (I built and manage it in my spare time), it actually functions pretty well - when itís functioning at all. As far as I know itís the only resource like this out there anywhere for free in the internet. I donít know of anywhere else that has a list of 200+ active maintainers with a way to actually communicate with them if you want to ask more about how they manage.

Thanks again for communicating about this. If you have any ideas of resources youíd like to build or manage, or challenges youíd like to run, we can always use more ways to keep folks engaged.

The charts don't seem to be working....all the sheets I opened has #value errors in all the cells.

I tried these:

I just joined the team and the link in the welcome mail to the anniversary says the google doc form location has moved. It directed me to the new one so I was able to enter my info, but maybe the move is the cause of the formula errors?

Not exactly, but I do like numbers! I find them comforting. If that many people can succeed, then I can, too!

What is it you need to know about the graphs?

Are there specific ones you don't understand?

Glad you like them!

It is kind of interesting to see the range of where we all are, and I especially like breaking out the waist ratios by gender, because males and females definitely have different shapes!

Now, Even Better graphs!

Here's the full list of links. Please be patient with some of them. There is a lot of data and Google Docs can sometimes take a while to load.

For many of the graphs you can hover your mouse over an area to get more information.

We all come in different sizes and shapes. Now you can see the range of it!

I've added a new feature to the maintenance anniversaries that I'll try to keep confidential - people can now put in their gender, year of birth, height, center of weight range, % body fat, waist circumference, and hip circumference. It's totally optional, just like the # of pounds lost has always been.

This is just to see the variety of where we all are, without any names attached.

Give the graphs a little time to load - some of them are slow.

If you want to add your data to the plots representing the variety of us, you can just fill out the form again.

(your old entry will be deleted)

If you decide later you don't want all that data in there, you can re-enter again, and just leave the fields blank. I periodically go through and remove the older duplicate entries, so your new entry will be the one that stays.

Enjoy!

On the body fat, my scales gives it, but it is different in the morning from the night so I'm never sure which is right. I think I still have the 'manual' it came with and I've been intending to research it, but just never got around to it. Guess this is a reason to do that!!

Just reposting this list of links so it'll show up on top. We've got lots of data now!

Give the graphs a little time to load - some of them are slow.

We all come in different sizes and shapes. Now you can see the range of it!

I've added a new feature to the maintenance anniversaries that I'll try to keep anonymous - people can now put in their height, center of weight range, % body fat, waist circumference, and hip circumference. It's totally optional, just like the # of pounds lost has always been.

This is just to see the variety of where we all are, without any names attached.

Gv3qKYX8rW6o-ODNA2eLr4YVeFtUwc/viewform

(your old entry will be deleted)

If you decide later you don't want all that data in there, you can re-enter again, and just leave the fields blank. I periodically go through and remove the older duplicate entries, so your new entry will be the one that stays.

Enjoy!

I had to estimate my actual anniversary date, too, Shelly. I know it was December but I have no memory of which day. And in the end, it's the long graph that matters.

Okay, I updated mine. Screwed up on my anniversary *day*, though, as I couldn't quite remember it, so I said the 20th. Yet, after checking back, it was the 15th, instead. Is that fixable or should I do back and reload ALL the info over again?

Where do I enter my height and measurements? All I see on the weekly challenge is weight.

BMI is calculated from the height and weight, so you don't have to put it in separately.

I just recently added all these other data fields people can put in if they are interested. That was the point of starting this thread, to let people know, in case they wanted to enter additional new data. :-)

@DUBINJL
To see the various charts, use the links in the first post on this thread.
(Or the tabs at the bottom of the page, when you're viewing one of the charts or tables.)
All of the links work in Google Chrome for me. Perhaps you need to refresh the page in your browser or clear the cache?

@SKIRNIR
Thanks for sharing that. I use Google Chrome, so perhaps Google Docs display optimally in the Google browser! LOL

Where were we supposed to enter our BMIs for the chart? I must have missed that.

For some odd reason that charts and pies and all worked much better for me in Firefox than Safari. Interesting. Thank you for those.

4/20/13 Neighborhood Watch 5K 39:17.6

12/1/13 Secret City Half Marathon around 3 hours and 4 minutes
4/19/14 Butterflies for Hope 5K for Lupus 39:23.8 (I hurt my back a few days before, and though it was my first official 5K with some jogging, my back hurt, so was very slow.)

I totally understand about the % body fat fluctuations! I use a weighted moving average of them, myself. :-)

You can go back and redo your data anytime. Just use that same form.

In the meantime, here's a frequency distribution of the BMI numbers that have been reported so far:
docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=
0A
h4KrA4GkhKgdC1oVGRkVTA0bUNTZk5zTGtzeR>HZGRmc#gid=20


And for the record, my personal opinion about BMI is that as long as it's under 30, you're good to go. Below 30 I like to focus on strength and % body fat (to the extent that it can be estimated, anyway).

Never, ever, EVER give up!

From BMI 53 (336 lbs) to under 30. Now aiming for less than 20% body fat.

Just started tracking on my body fat scale, but the darn thing is so inaccurate/ups and downs, that I want to kind of average it out a bit before I enter one. I decided I wanted to start tracking it once a week, but only in the last few days have I started measuring. Need to do more research on the female cycle and fat scale stuff, to at least know what the trends/ups and downs will be.

4/20/13 Neighborhood Watch 5K 39:17.6

LOL. You're on there - I'm working on it! :-)

You and someone else added data without % body fat, so I'm trying to get up a BMI frequency distribution we can all look at. :-)

Tried to add mine, but have no idea if it worked or not. Can't seem to get the chart/spreadsheet to let me scroll at all, even though I could earlier. :(
