Positive Reinforcement Scale: Love It or Leave It?

I know positive reinforcement is important when you're trying to lose weight or maintain the weight you have, but if you buy a scale and keep it in your bathroom (especially a pink plushie scale), wouldn't you want the numbers?

After your third plate of super-sized nachos, is it really going to help you to step on a scale and see "lovely," "sexy," and "perfect"? If you're going to forego numbers, you might do it by getting my new invention, the Mom Scale. Get on it and instead of numbers, it will say, "Are you really going out in that?" or "I told you not to have that second piece of pie."

So what about this $55 dollar positive reinforcement plushie scale?

Haha, I like the pink fluffy bit, and the positive re-enforcement idea (but it doesn't work with that one) What would work was if if were electronic, so it can track your progress, and give you better words as you get closer to your goal weight, but if you have an off day, it encourages you to get it back together. I'd like to make a fluffy pink cover for mine *grins*

Not practical at all.

This scale seems pointless. I like the pink plushiness of it though.

Damn -- I think I only spent about $35 on my real scale!

Someone should invent a scale that offers you positive reinforcement when you get closer to your weight goal. And diet consultation. But that sounds pretty high-tech, so let's just stick to numbers.

If you really want to lose weight, eat less and move more. Otherwise buy this scale, and eat more fast food. If you have a medical condition, my comment does not apply to you whatsoever.

I'm sorry, 55 dollars for that hideous thing that doesnt actually have numbers?! My question is how the words change as you get heavier? Like in better and better words or are there only like 10 options? if I stepped on it at 650 pounds and it said Perfect, I would just laugh. I don't mean that to be mean, but its just delusional to think thats the positive reinforcement word you need at that weight.

It might make a funny gag gift, but it's pretty useless otherwise. $55 is pretty steep for a novelty scale.
