actress needed

Hi -

So - we've been having a hard time finding a 'look-alike' actress for the diet video we are making so we thought we would try another tack...

Is there an actress out there - late 20s to mid 40s - who has had a significant weight loss? Someone that we could show 'before and after'

pictures of (similar to the ones attached)?

The actress (once we find her) will read from a teleprompter in a kitchen set about the diet program. The main thing is we need a female that we show shots of to establish, then have her read the script.

Please reply if this describes you! Thank you!
