If you weigh more than the number in blue: subtract the number from the thermometer from your character's weight to get the result number. For example if the thermometer says 20 and you weigh 30 kg, you would need 10 kg. If you weigh less than the number in blue: subtract your character's weight from the number in blue from to get the result number. On the floor of this room is a pile of weights. Right-click take weights equaling the result number you got.
