Preview your body 20 pounds lighter.
As of 2/15/11, it appears that the WeightView site is no longer live.
Have you ever wanted to know what you might look like 10 pounds lighter? Or 50 pounds lighter? Rather than taping a picture of your face onto the body of Elle Macpherson, a new digital tool allows you to visualize what your body, not Elle’s, would look like if you actually met your weight loss goal.
The WeightView is such a device that acts as both a personalized image of your svelte self and a motivator that supports you to meet your ideal weight goal. In order to keep your motivation up and consistent, you can print out this future image of yourself, post it on your fridge, tape it to your full-length mirror or download it to your cell phone.
Here’s how it works: Simply upload a digital photo of yourself onto the WeightView website, select how many pounds you want to lose from a drop-down menu and within 48 hours, you’ll receive an email with an image of your transformed self.

It only appears that the torso area becomes slimmer and not the legs, arms or face, even though when someone loses a significant amount of weight, their entire body shows the change.
Overall, it can be an ideal tool to help people visualize their end-goal, and use it as a constant motivator to work toward it.Common Misspellings
