This study reports how showing a person an illustration of themselves following future weight-loss might impact on their actual future weight-loss. Weight was recorded weekly, 8 weeks before and 8 weeks after the intervention. A significant proportion of the 44 participants lost weight following the intervention: 17 vs. 29 (P = 0.01, chi-squared = 6.559). After the first 8 weeks, the mean change in weight was -0.32 kg [standard deviation (SD): 2.2, P = 0.37]. The weight change after the second 8 weeks was -0.94 kg (SD: 1.7, P = 0.001). The mean difference in weight losses between the two periods was -0.62 kg (SD: 2.1, P = 0.08).
