How to Give Your Scale a Makeover

My 18 year old daughter, away at college, wanted a scale to take to school. I told her she could have mine, but she forgot to take it after she went back from winter break.

I was about to box it up to mail to her and I remembered an idea I'd seen elsewhere (there's nothing new under the sun, right?) and decided to give the scale a makeover.

Here it is:

In case you can't read it, it says "YOU ARE AWESOME" across the top and the little word bubble under the screen where the (often dreaded) number shows up says:

"You are so much more than this number."

Funny how I'd never thought to do it for myself. I do plan on getting a new scale, and I will plan on jazzing that one up too.

Why not give your scale a makeover today?
