All I can say it is extremely effective, especially if you tape it to your refrigerator's door!

Wow, so motivating. And it really brings it home why the scale should not be the only measure of my progress, but the way my clothes fit and my measurements too. I think I'm going to save this picture. Thanks for posting!

That's really distrubing. I've always know that muscles weighs more than fat, but takes up less space, but that really paints a picture, doesn't it!

I don't care how much I weigh, really, I just want to fit into my clothes and be healthy.

Holy smokes, I have seen the picture originally posted - but I've never seen this one before, and wow does it bring things into perspective. Thank you for posting this and for providing me with some extra motivation, I'm going to print this out and stick it on my fridge ASAP.
