I am a VERY visual person. I think having a picture of what i could look like at 20lbs lighter would really inspire me. Does anyone know of any weight loss simulators? Or any pictures that show what 20-30lb looks like off a 5ft 2ish person? I've kinda been in a funk lately. Some unresolved problems from this past year have been creeping into my thoughts and... it's really killing my efforts. So I though pictures would help. :-)

Also what do you use to motivate/inspire you?

I would also like to see this. I have a picture of what I looked like at my goal weight (although it was 15 years ago!)

Whoah I found a really cool site! Search "mybodygallery" on google. It's real people! You can put in weight, height, pants size, shirt sizes, and shape! (Don't fill it all in though- you won't get much results, be broad-ish!)

my weight loss gallery is so great! The only problem is, when I search for hourglass figures, there are a lot of people who definitely aren't. (I'm guessing it's wishful thinking)

I'm glad I saw this about "weight mirror" (http://makeovr.com/weightmirror/) ... what a fun idea!

When I did myself, weight gain/loss only occurred in my mid-section, leaving my hips & legs the same size so I got even MORE pear-shaped at lower weights. Yikes! Have to try a different photo.

The fourth link I found when I searched was this tool to "re-size" yourself in photos... the example they use is creeeeeepy... they took 50 lbs off an already thin woman..

Okay yah that picture of the lady is kinda creepy. She looked VERY thing in the 1st photo and even thinner she looked like a skeleton.

A friend of mine who is better at photoshop than me made this rendition the other day of what I might look like at goal weight:

(The one on the left is how I actually look as of a week or so back)

I LOVE IT and it's been a great motivator the last few days!

There's a good collection of height/weight photos here (http://www.cockeyed.com/photos/bodies/heightweight.html).
