That's interesting. I wonder what a scan of my body would have looked like at 70 inches tall and 330 pounds. Though, it doesn't say how tall they are.

Wow. This has really hit home as 253 is my current weight. I've always knew deep down there must be some internal difference but never had the ability to see it before now. I wish I could get a scan of *me*, now...and use that as motivation - it would be horrible to look at, but such a motivator.

I'm going to save this as a screen on my phone...so I can swipe to it when I need it.

Amazing! Thanks for sharing. The thing that stood out most to me was how much fat was going on internally - around organs such as colon/heart. Great motivation, thanks!

Yikes. So I guess the one on the left was me a couple of years ago. Hopefully a lot closer to the one on the right now -- and hope to stay that way...

Starting Weight: 260 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

wow. The 250 lb woman's upper legs are muscular, but she has less evidence of muscle mass in her calves compared to the 120 lb woman. She looks uncomfortable. I was close to 225 recently, so this scan could have been me if I didn't take control.

I am printing this photo in color and then using it to make a visual motivator for my weight loss journey. My starting weight is just a hair over the large photo so I am hoping that seeing this daily will really help me stay on track.

Now I just need some visual motivators to start me exercising. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them.


THANKS,

OMG . I used to weigh 298 pounds. What the scan of the 250 pound woman showed the size of her heart and internal organs. It just motivates me to never get back there again. I can't believe how much damage I was doing to my body. Know wonder I felt so bad all the time. But I was overweight/obese for the 1st 40 years of my life and reversed all my problems such as sleep apnea, prediabetes, PCOS, gerd ,back pain.Thanks I sometimes get focused on the 11 pounds I need to lose and not the 134 I have kept off got 6.5 years.

body-scan-of-a-250-lbs-woman-vs-a-120- lbs-woman/940665


To the person who made this comment:

"...but I fail to see what's so bad about the 250lbs woman? She looks different for sure (but don't we all?), and has more fat, but apart from that? I'm not a doctor, so I can't tell what would actually be weight-related health problems from this picture alone. Can you?"

I would suggest that even a totally unqualified person can see the massive amount of fat around the organs, and realize that this is a health hazard in itself We don't HAVE to know the BP, or blood results to know that this isn't good! THEN by reading the other issues pointed out below the two images, you can see how the excessive weight impacts further.

I agree with the previous poster. From the picture you can't tell her BP, her glucose levels, whether her spine is correct,. Other than being overweight-- the 120lb woman may have cancer or diabetes.

I'm going to be the voice of dissent here perhaps, but I fail to see what's so bad about the 250lbs woman? She looks different for sure (but don't we all?), and has more fat, but apart from that? I'm not a doctor, so I can't tell what would actually be weight-related health problems from this picture alone. Can you?

That is scary: the damage done on the inside is the the bigger issue than the physical appearance on the outside that so many of us tend to be more concerned with.

Stay healthy

That is, in fact, rather disturbing...emoticon

Normally I would say pass the eye/mind bleach, but this is a visual that I really need to keep in mind! Maybe it will help the next time I feel like eating garbage or sitting on my behind instead of exercising

while I'm thinking someone of 250 lbs doesn't often have a goal of 120; it would be nice if it were a scan of the SAME person; before & after healthy weight loss
