Plush Size Yay! Scale
From the website:
Plush Size Yay! Scale
How would you feel if you stepped on the scale in the morning and it always gave you a compliment?
"PERFECT" or "GORGEOUS" or "HOT"....
You'll never have another bad scale day with a Yay! Scale.
Thanks to the principles of quantum physics, a Yay! Scale never lies.
Conceived, designed, handmade, dated & signed by Marilyn Wann of Fat!So? fame.
10"W x 9.75"L x 2"H.

it's a definite conversation piece and potential party-game item! I'd have everyone step on it! LOL

I think it is more important to love yourself (no "buts") than to live longer. Maybe that's just me.
I'd throw out this scale as soon as any others -- it's funny, but ultimately a reminder of what a real scale would say. If you'd rely on such a device to boost your self-esteem, the thing is likely to have the opposite effect. I think it's smarter to stop measuring one's value by a scale altogether.

Check out this on how to make your own [via BBG]:
As for ugly comments? I think the "fat-acceptance" groups do just as much harm to those that are overweight as the ugly people that make fun of the overweight. It is good to accept yourself for whom you are...but it is better to always try to better yourself. My father died a few months ago of a heart attack because he was severely overweight. I loved him EXACTLY how he was...but I would have loved even more to still have him with me another few years than to just have memories.
Has nothing to do with obesity, but more the desire to see EVERYONE as healthy as they can be.

Though I wrote about throwing out the scale in the NY Times, Joe (here's the cumbersome link --- http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/16/health/nutrition/16skin.html?_r=1&scp=3&sq=%22mandy%20Katz%22&st=cse), I think this one might be worth stepping on. I'd keep mine in my living room!
