cool site

If you're trying to lose weight, or even if you're might enjoy checking out this VERY cool site:

Quoting from the site, "
WeightView is a digital and personalized motivational tool that uses the power of visualization to help to achieve weight loss success." In plain English, this is a site that will generate a pic of you up to 50 pounds lighter, for free. The idea behind this is that most of us are visual creatures who would do well to have something visual to strive for; however, when most of us look at pics of ourselves slimmer, those pics were often taken when we were younger, and so it's easy to think, "I can't get that slim again because I'll never be that young again"; this site produces a visual to look forward to.

It does this by having you upload a picture of yourself and then selecting the amount of weight you'd like to lose: the choices are in 10 pound increments, up to 50 pounds. Within 24 to 48 hours, you'll be able to see your pic, altered to show how you'd look 10 or 20 or 50 pounds lighter. It's cool, and best of all, as noted above, it's FREE! I have no connection to the site; I saw this on the news last night and it is on my blog.

So get yourself a midnight snack and check it out.

Does this thing take AGE into account?

I ask this because...back about four years ago, I joined Weight Watchers. It was great. I lost the weight I wanted to lose. However...

If you are pushing 50, don't be fooled into thinking that once you lose the thirty pounds you've put on in the last two decades, you will LOOK like you did twenty years ago. Ain't gonna happen. You'll fit into smaller clothes, but you won't look so great without clothes. The fat may go away, but the loose skin is just gonna hang there unless you decide to have some major cosmetic surgery.

Not that it wasn't worth it to lose the weight... It was just an...interesting educational process.

This will help my youngest but I must ffind a creative way to approach her.

I'm small mainly due to muscle loss but my gut is growing. I had to give a man my measurements for a wetsuit. He mentioned my waist threw the size chart way off. ;)

LOL! Tammy, my waist size ALWAYS throws the size chart way off. I'm slim hipped and for the most part slight, but I've never had a tiny waist, and the first place I gain weight is my middle, every time!
