Street View spurs weight loss program for overweight user

Friday, November 19th, 2010

An odd twist to geospatial problem-solving in the world: a Bristol, UK man saw himself on Google Maps Street View and promptly went on a diet. 

The Daily Mail reported that Bob Mewse, 56, weighed 296 pounds a year ago when he saw himself on the mapping service. The camera shot a side view of Mewse wearing a gray shirt near a filling station.

“I was horrified when I saw that photo,” he told the Telegraph. “I was massive. My belly was sticking out and I looked huge.”

Further, he was having back problems and very high blood pressure. He went to a gym, hired a personal trainer and has since lost 98 pounds.
