I have no idea if this thing is a good deal or not, but the description made me smile. Apparently it is a taking scale that doesn't tell you your weight, but rather your weight change.
And do you know who tells you this vital information? It’s Mary Lou Retton! She is trapped inside the little scale and every time you step on her, she yelps out not only your weight change but also a piece of dieting advice! Yes, every morning you can have Mary Lou’s perky voice cheering you on to not give up. It’s kinda nice to have a built-in cheerleader… an Olympic champion, no less. And the scale goes in ten pound increments.
Once you’ve lost ten pounds, it cheers, applauds, and resets for the next ten. So you work towards small, achievable goals of ten pound chunks rather than focusing on 50 or 120 or whatever pounds you have to lose.
Bought this for the last deal that was $19 shipped (I think). It only has a couple of reviews on Amazon[amazon.com] but they are both good.
After using it for a month, I really like it. It gives you a small attainable goal...it records starting weight and then once you've lost 10 pounds you get another starting weight until you've lost 10 pounds and so on.
Most importantly you don't have to see a scary number looming at you when you're first starting out and she gives you a lot of encouragement and tips.
me and my girlfriend are trying to lose weight together in a little friendly competition. Can this machine store multiple starting weights for more than one person?
Little spoiler for you, but do to the fact that you're a man and she's a woman you're probably going to win your little friendly competition unless you plan on not putting in the same amount of effort that she is. But if you are, make the prize something REALLY good.
