Bathroom scales, eh? You’ve just got to hate them. After all, you spend all day trying to shed a few pounds and then the scales just ignore all your hard work and give you the bad news without a second thought. If only they could work a bit harder for us and give us some useful ideas.
Well, the good news is that there are now scales which at least try and do more than depress us with cold, hard facts. They have been made by Hammacher Schlemmer and when they tell you your current weight they also suggest some exercises you could do to whip yourself into better shape.
