Virtual Weight Loss Images

Is there a website/web app that allows me to plug in different measurements I take of my body, then shows me an image of what I might look like at different body weights and/or physical conditions?

I'm in the (slow) process of losing a significant amount of weight, and getting in better shape physically in general. I realize that everyone's body stores fat and bulks up on muscle differently, but it'd be a great inspiration to be able to see what I would look like at different milestones on my journey.
Normally, I'd just find people of similar skeletal structure and height and infer from their bodies what I might look like. But that's the trouble: I have a somewhat unusual skeleton proportion-wise (very short legs, wide shoulders, wide hips), so it's tough to do that.
It was actually that weird breast-implant software that's used to show women what their new pair would look like that got me thinking about this. I would imagine that with the right data (e.g., the width between my shoulder blades, my height, the places my body tends to distribute fat), a computer could show me a picture of what I might look like at different weights and muscularity. But is there anything like this on the web?
