Well, if I were 80 years and 289 days old then I did actually start at zero lbs.
I have gained 1.4 lbs since breakfast by imbibing/consuming only coffee and water and burning off 120 Calories (about 120/3500 of a lb of fat) on a machine so much of the 'noise' in the 'signal' is water.
With the scale and spreadsheet I think I have achieved "the interaction of multiple elements in a system to produce an effect different from or greater than the sum of their individual effects."
When I have also achieved Emergence then I'll be ready for Prime Time!
Here's a graph for you.
A person goes from 0 to 8 lbs in 9 months.
Then from 8 lbs to 150 in 18 years.
Then gains a pound a year for 30 years.
Then. . .???
BTW, 12 days into this experiment (based largely on the book
Eat to Live) Excel now tells me that I will cross through 150 lbs 50 to 75 days from now.
See you then.
