These Weight-Loss Transformation Photos Are Like None You’ve Ever Seen Before

Women’s Health recently featured these photos from “”The Beth Project”” u2014u00a0such a fun and creative approach to documenting a weight-loss journey.

You’ve seen before-and-after photos before (probably on this site!). But this series from photographer Blake Morrow that features his friend (and fellow photographer) Beth Beard take the idea to a much more creative place: in each of the below pictures| Beth posed once pre-gastric-bypass surgery and then again two years later| after she’d lost more than 150 pounds.

Beth approached Blake about shooting some photos| and Blake came up with the idea to make them pop culture inspired. And although gastric bypass surgery helped Beth kick-start her weight loss| she told Yahoo Canada she’s also overhauled her lifestyle to get healthier. “”Beth is now a regular biker to work and is also in a roller derby team now|”” Blake wrote in an email to WomensHealthMag.com. “”Just goes to show that exercise doesnu2019t have to be boring.””

While Blake obviously used digital technology to create this series| which he’s calling “”The Beth Project|”” he is careful to point out that he never altered Beth’s body. “”Iu2019ve lost weight| but I havenu2019t lost who I am|”” Beth told Yahoo Canada. “”Itu2019s just given me more opportunities to be more me| if that makes sense. There were things Iu2019d always wanted to do and try| but my weight had gotten in my way. Now I feel like I have the freedom to pursue them more.””
