13 Weeks: Getting Animated
It takes a helluva lot of frames to make a movie.

That chart is a simulation: I made a line that had the same rough slope as my weight loss, and then made synthetic data points around that line. The points are normally distributed — the famous bell curve beloved of statisticians — and the variance is around 5 pounds. Notice how similar they look?
And that’s the point. I am losing weight — and yes, my glucose is also dropping still, and the tape measure shows I’m losing body fat. Day to day, though, it’s hard to see — perfectly normal randomness is hiding it. It’s hard to see.
But then, I’ve only got 147 frames of this animation — a little over 6 seconds of film. It might be a little early to be discouraged.
