Virtual Weight-Loss Tool Useful for Online Dating

There’s lots of fun to be had* on Marie Claire’s Virtual Weight Loss toy, a funhouse mirror-type program wherein you upload a picture of yourself and toggle the “scale” up and down to make it look like you just lost or gained a bunch of weight. Its slogan in the magazine is “Lose 10 Lbs. Right Now,” which is amusing because the only way to do that would be to get an amputation. I tried to make it say that I was 10 lbs. six inches, and they told me I was hyper-obese, which I guess I would be!

*No actual fun can be had. “Reluctance to stop trying to make it fatter/skinnier than it will let you” probably more accurate.
