OK! Magazine Recycles 2003 Photo For Britney's Weight Loss Cover

This week's OK! Magazine cover features a photograph of Britney Spears with the headline, "Britney Lost 15 Lbs in Just 4 Weeks!" and a subhead, "Back to her old body with the miracle food that sheds weight fast."

Back to her old body, indeed. The image OK! uses to show Britney's transformation is actually from a 2003 photo shoot for Glamour's Women of the Year issue.

With rave reviews of her guest spot on "How I Met Your Mother," Britney does actually show signs of a comeback and a return to her old star self. But unfortunately, OK!'s cover photo choice paints an unrealistic picture of her comeback, which is a work in progress — and shows that the only way to "Steal Brit's New Diet Secret," as the cover screams, is to go back over 4 years in time.
