If this won't make you stick yo your New Year's Resolution, we don't know what will: The Withings Wi-Fi Body Scale is now designed to Tweet your current weight to the Twitterverse.

We first covered the Withings WiFi Body Scale, with it's internet connected weight-tracking software and coordinating iPhone App, back in July before it was available in the US.

But the US launch happened right on schedule and with an added feature that may or may not have added value for us consumers: The scale not only sends your weight to your computer and iPhone, but also directly to Twitter. Daily, weekly or monthly, you can set your scale to Tweet your weight loss progress. Update your followers with your current weight and exactly how much you've got left to reach your goal.

It's actually a great gadget for anybody on a serious Big-Loser-style weight binge. Often times, a social network of support can offer you the motivation to stay on track for the long haul. But for us casual weight-watchers, we'd rather not have our followers in on our daily weight specs.
