Shocking: We are always see what weight is doing to the outside of our bodies. But seeing how it effects us from the inside makes a world of difference.

Great reality check, especially as it's an internal perspective. It helps to look at the whole person from the inside out...

I had this on the side of my dresser so I would see it first thing in the morning... Helped me lose 30 pounds years ago... I think it's time again...

That is very frightening to see the lady on the left. I've never been 250, but I've been close enough (190) once in my life.

I know when I eat healthy food that my insides have to be healthier as well. It motivates me to lose more and also to continue this healthy way of eating for life.

10/8/10 3:47 P

Wow! This is so motivating. I definitely want to be the girl on the right! Thanks for sharing.

WOW!!!! I currently weight 253. I will be working harder at staying on track. This is me but not for long.

Wow...her heart isn't bigger...It's got fat around it and that is sooooo dangerous. Hello heart disease!

Great motivation...not just to be skinny...but to be HEALTHY!

Motivational, indeed! Thanks for sharing. I wish more people could see images like's make you realize there's more than just what you see on the outside.

I am glad you all find it as motivational as I did!

more importantly I hope you were able to gain lost motivation or strenghten your drive!

My hope is we all learn something!

I sure did! And I am not 250 lbs! I see some part of me in here! scary!!!

I think if I wasn't already on spark trying to lose weight that image would really have motivated me to start.

10/3/10 3:01 P

Looking at the stomach makes me realize why it's so hard in the beginning to eat lots less. It takes a lot of food to fill it up, and the poor stomach isn't use to that. Yep, definitely an enlightening picture. Thanks for posting this.
