Foodie Find: Tweet your way to weight-loss!

Written by Donna Marie Desfor, Culinary Consultant and Chef | Jan 2, 2012 1:37 PM

With the Withings WiFi Body Scale you can harness the power of twitter, facebook, and your own personal blog to share your weight-loss progress!  Every time you step on this scale your weight is blasted out into cyberspace so everyone that follows you knows how you’re doing.  In this latest form of social networking and sharing (can we file this under TMI??) your waning willpower will supposedly get a boost of incentive to help you keep up with your New Year’s weight-loss resolution.  With constant worry about people commenting on your weight, or so the theory goes, you’ll stick to your exercise routine and make smarter choices about what you put into your mouth.  The positive feedback (as your numbers go down) is meant only to fuel your paranoia that people really are watching.

 

Now if they could only figure out how to wire the device so that it tweets out each time the refrigerator is opened…. Or, GPS for when you hit the drive-thru… or, when the hand gets anywhere near the mouth….
