    A long time ago I used a computer programme which took your vital stats and 'drew' you. You could make it look like you by changing features etc etc. Then you could put in your target weight, and it drew you again as you would look if you were skinnier.

    It was really good, and I think it would be really motivating, but I can't for the life of me remember what the programme was.

    Has anyone ever used anything similar please?

    Thanks in advance. x

    I used my virtual model, but could relate! I took a photo of myself and then photo shopped it, I keep it as my wallpaper to keep me motivated!

    I'm a member of the Virtual Model site too, I love dressing myself up in the sort of clothes that I shall be able to buy when I lose my weight - it's very satisfying and helps to keep me motivated.

    Thanks Guys...I've had a look at Virtual Model, it's good, but not the one...but thanks anyway.

    I used my virtual model, but could relate! I took a photo of myself and then photo shopped it, I keep it as my wallpaper to keep me motivated!

    Yeah I just take an educated guess of where I'd like the weight to come off from, stomach, legs, arms, neck, face - everywhere!

    well. i gave this ago, and no matter how much i tried i could get it to do my body quite right, i mean the weight loss was significant, but my boobs were still way to small compared to real life, and im sure i dont look anywhere as small as it was making me look when i was typing in my current weight!

    Hey, I agree, my virtual model, it looked far too toned, not one spec of cellulite. I wish!!

    I found this the other day - it is a service that charges you to adapt an image of yourself: See Yourself Slimmer photo slimming aid

    But if you had skills with photoshop or knew someone who did... could save a bit :)

    OK, couple of things, first the good skinny photo is on my laptop and it's taken a nice little cruise up a famous creek that rhymes with fit...
    Second, excuse the hair, and the t-shirt, I only get to wear it out at christmas so I use it as a PJ top the rest of the year!
    Not my best, but I'm not that good at PS and I did it quick, but you get the idea;

    I just realised that top makes me look like I have no breasts! Much easier than lugging these 44 DD's around!
