Bob Mewse used to be 300 pounds. Now he's 200 pounds. All thanks to seeing a picture of himself on Google Street View, being thoroughly disappointed, and deciding to do something about it (and actually doing that thing -- that's the key). Me? I'm so fat I can't reach my belly button to check for lint. My collection is suffering!
Mr Mewse lost a third of his body weight after drastic changes to his diet and a strict regime of exercise.
The Google Street View photograph showed Mr Mewse, of Bristol, side-on opposite a filling station wearing a tent-like grey shirt.
He said: "I was horrified when I saw that photo. I was massive. My belly was sticking out and I looked huge.
"I'd been thinking about losing weight for some time but after seeing that picture, I knew that I actually had to do something about it. I was in such bad condition that I was unable to walk and talk at the same time.
Two words, Bob: invest in a mirror. Just sayin' -- could've gotten your weight-loss party started a whole lot sooner.
Thanks to Kendall and jerry rigged, who don't need Google Street View to remind them they have legs because they take care of themselves.
