Talking bath scale lets the lbs do the talking
Talking scale talks you into eating less
I have a love/hate relationship with my bathroom scale.
It sits in the corner of my bathroom, armed with the power to either raise my spirits or demolish them with one glance at itís smirking digital display. Yes, my scale smirksÖ especially after Iíve had an ample serving of lasagna. Sometimes I hop on and am pleasantly surprised, other times I hop off and reach for the nearest Lady Bic razor so I can put myself out of my misery.
Itís more sadomasochistic than a whip and chains and yet, I still punish myself by stepping on it at least once a week. Weighing-in time is never fun. My palms get sweaty, I get light-headed, cotton mouth and even breakout in hives depending on the final readout, that is when I can see it. My eyes arenít what they used to be, so most times I find myself straining and squinting to see if my number is up. Not anymore.
This Talking Scale from Independent Living Aids is not only accurate (to within 1% of my actual weight), but it also tells me my weight in a clear and audible voice that is both soothing and comforting - like that nice British lady from my carís Navigation System. My talking scale will never laugh at me. It will calmly tell me my weight without judgment, and use itís healing tones to assure me that everything is going to be all right.
Perfect for the visually impaired, the scale also features a large digital readout of 1.25Ē, weighs up to 400 lbs and has an ample sized platform that is ridged and textured to prevent me from slipping and sliding. It even comes with 4 AA batteries.
It isnít how much you weigh, itís whatís on the inside that matters. My scale told me that.
- 14.5Ē x 11Ē platform
- 4 AA batteries included
- Price: $63.95
DID YOU KNOW? Leonardo da Vinci invented the first self-indicating weight scale around the year 1500. Shortly after, he went on a diet.
