The next level of “Before and After” weight-loss photos

The next level of “Before and After” weight-loss photos

As you lose weight, it’s often helpful to have visual reminders of your progress. This may involve taking photographs each week to track your weight as time goes by so that you can better see changes in your body composition and the fit of your clothing. Instead of following the standard protocol of photographing herself in the same clothing every week, Toronto resident Beth Beard decided to go in a different direction after undergoing gastric bypass surgery two and a half years ago.

Beth got creative and celebrated her progress through photographs in costumes. She contacted her friend Blake Morrow to help put her visions to life.

“I created a series of pop culture-inspired portraits of my friend Beth, playfully celebrating her fantastic weight loss of 150 pounds,” wrote Morrow on his website. “I shot her ‘before’ and ‘after’ selves two years apart, and I digitally integrated them to interact with each other within each scene. To properly communicate and celebrate Beth’s accomplishment, her body shape has not been digitally altered.”

Weight-loss image app allows you to see a thinner you

Weight-loss image app allows you to see a thinner you

Motivation is a key factor to losing weight. The developers of a new mobile app called Visualize You believe that their app will motivate you to lose weight by showing you what you’ll look like when you reach your goal. With Visualize You, users can take old photos and transform them into versions of themselves after they’ve lost weight. The app’s software successfully crafts a realistic image that can vary depending on the goal you input, along with other information like age and height. Unlike other imaging software that simply stretches or squeezes a picture, Visualize You’s focus is to deliver an accurate depiction of what you can look like.

According to Charlie Seltzer, MD on Yahoo Health, visual cues like those the app provides are useful because, “I will often recommend that people put up pictures of what they want to look like or what they used to look like, provided the body image is healthy.” The app is available on iPhone and Android for free, and for $1.99 if the user wants advertisements removed.
