I have several photos, which I loathe, of me at my worst ever (in terms of weight, stress, unhappiness etc.). I very rarely look at these because they make me feel depressed and sad at seeing the person I was back then. However, I go to myvirtualmodel.com regularly and look at my avatar at my largest weight, then current weight and finally target weight. For some crazy reason when I shrink the avatar, I get more pleasure and motivation out of it than I do at looking at static photos of me when I looked and felt crap (I also love dressing the avatar and seeing the nicer clothes that I look forward to wearing). Maybe it's a control thing because I'm the kind of person who is very independent-minded, likes to be in control and has to see the big picture to be motivated and myvirtualmodel.com gives me the illusion of being in control and seeing the future me. Either way, it really helps me out. You could try it and see what you think.
