It strikes me as odd – if you’re already lonely enough, don’t you think that ought to be sufficient incentive to help you shed those pounds and pile on some muscle at the gym in order to pick up a potential wife? Well, for those who lack even that motivation, there is a virtual wife available from Japanese weight loss site Metaboinfo.com. This virtual lady will nag you in order to lose your weight, forcing you to shape up. Well, I think this is rather foolish since you can easily turn off a virtual character, but it is much harder to do so with someone real. Choose from a giggly maid, a cold businesswoman, a loving nurse or a fashion-minded nail artist to help you on the road to being 3 sizes smaller.
