I would like the avatar link too! I thought I had found one, but it is not for weight loss. Thanks!

It is really cool and looks very realistic! Upload your own photo and watch what you look like when you gain or lose weight...

I was upset too when prevention stopped theirs. It is a motivator to see what you might look later when we lose the weight. I hope this one stays around.

I was disappointed when prevention discontinued the virtal image. But I have found this site you can download your pic it is easy and simple. I dont think you can save it but you can print the pics.

Created the avatar but don't know how to move it to this site.

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:

Where do you find these avatars? I would love to try them out!

1/15/10 8:57 A

Hmmm, none of them work for me. I have even copied and pasted address from here. They keep telling me that the page can not be found. Hmmmmmm emoticon

Can't find a site to make one for guys. Any suggestions? emoticon

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.

1/14/10 3:37 P

I keep getting "webpage cannot be found" when I click on the weight loss simulator in the bottom left of the screen from the new link just posted. How were you able to do it?

I actually just checked both urls given here and neither one worked for me :( I hope I can find this somewhere else as it seems like it would be a great motivational tool.

10/13/09 2:27 A

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?

Thanks and God bless!

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..

Now that was pretty fun, just seeing virtually how far I've come & how far I need to go.

How neat! I put in my old weight and my current weight and it gave me a real sense of accomplishment to see just how much I have lost. 10 pounds to go!

thanks for the web tips-I'll let our fitness club know-it'd be great for new clients to see 'virtually' where they can be with fitness/nutrition changes

9/10/08 4:46 P

I also have another site where you can get the weight loss avatars... I believe they are actually the same ones used by 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!
