Chair is also a covert electronic scale. Could be an easy chair or a wooden chair the style is not important. The chair has an amplification system and a loud speaker built into it.

When an individual sits on the chair their weight is measured and an equivalent startling scream of pain or misery is let out. Volume determined based on weight.

Long term exposure = weight loss motivation.

"Every time I sit on that chair John it screams at me, I must be a fat ass I have to do something!"

       Chairs with the weight displayed on the back of the backrest, in large LCD numbers. Situated in public like on subways and waiting rooms. Just thinking aloud.

       I'm reminded of that talking bathroom scale from Garfield.

       For your current weight the ideal height would be twenty feet.

       I think it should be coupled with time logging which alerts users who don't get up frequently enough to keep their blood moving properly. [+]

       Given the sensors usually used for those purposes, there's also plenty of room for acute discomfort.
