I just saw this on another Sparker's blog and thought I'd share it with you all:

Aaaand then I threw in my pics of me "now" and me at my goal weight of 170:

And me at my "well if I'm crazy" goal weight of 150:

And then to make myself feel better (cause I don't see much change in those except a smaller butt) -- I modeled what I look like now against my high weight.

It really does put things in perspective... I have come a long way. The little bit that's left is more for myself to feel good. If I don't ever get to 150... I will be happy with myself. I don't look bad now. The old me would slap me across the face for saying negative things about how I look now. I have a body the old me would have killed for and dreamed about.

I am happy. I love myself. I am loved. Losing the last bit of weight is for myself -- but after looking at the pics above -- I will DEFINITELY be doing A LOT of squats! I need a better butt than that ;-0 !

    I'm so glad you feel happy & satisfied with your progress so far! I think you look awesome.

The virtual model isn't working for me right now but I'm going to try again after a long needed browser update. Those never look the same as me though, because there's no setting for "absurdly gigantic rack". emoticon

    Thanks for sharing - I just tried it out too. I started at 208 and am now at 170, looking to get to 155 (5'9 1/2"). The before looks right. I can't see a difference between my 170 and 155, although my 170 model looks smaller than I really am. If the 155 turns out to be accurate I will be happy with that. Will keep pressing on so I can see the results!!

    That's a good way of putting things in perspective to see it visually and just by numbers
