I was disappointed when prevention discontinued the virtal image. But I have found this site http://www.exercisetv.tv/modiface.aspx you can download your pic it is easy and simple. I dont think you can save it but you can print the pics.
I remember seeing a website where you upload your photo and select the number of pounds you want "removed" from it. They will then photoshop the picture and remove say 50 pounds from it. Here is the link:
So...I created one of these virtual models when I was 30 pounds heavier and forgot about it. I just logged into the site and changed it to where I am now and almost fell over!! Thanks for the reminder!
try using a real photo, it can in the long run avoid figure distortion issues.. the brain needs to see the real you, if you use these fake photos and don't end looking as good as them another hammer in the head at the end of the journey..

I just set up one model with my current weight, saved the picture, then did a second one at my goal weight and saved that picture. It probably isn't exactly the same as the simulator but it gave me what I wanted.
I found the virtual model -- I think it would be really motivating to "see" what I'm aiming at on my page -- I can't figure out how to embed the avatar on my Sparks page. Can anybody explain this easily?

I'll ask the question for the all the guys who want to know this:
Is there a site for guys to make their own before and after avatars?
These are fun BUT and a very large and serious but. Many professionals, trainers and people whom have done the journey would appreciate real photos, as when people ask for advice we need to see a person to give safe, realistic and non offending advice. I have without meaning to offended people sitting in wheelchairs (sorry to them) andand discoverered people with eating disorders crying wolf if I read back on their blog logs, as sometimes what people write is also drama crap.. Keep the photo real if you want information that doesn't offend. I don't think we should use hours to dig up needed information.. We are here because we all have problems of one nature or another to get a handle on so make it real and easier to obtain help..

These were fun. Made really be able to see my body in a different light. Thanks for sharing.
I also have another site where you can get the weight loss avatars... I believe they are actually the same ones used by mvm.com but they are set up to use as weight loss models.... already set up with side by side shots of before and after models... no photoshop required! haha... Have Fun!
