Thanks so much for your advice. I really lucked out finding one at a local Goodwill. It does both oz and grams and is analog so I can pretty easily set it up for a variety of bowls and dishes. Also it was 1.99! I figure eve if it poops out on me in the next few years I will have TOTALLY gotten my monies worth :).

Hi there! I saw in another section one of your goals was to buy a food scale. That's a GREAT step in the right direction! Try to get one that can weigh in ounces and grams and you will be set! There are so many foods and recipes out there and I mix and match them all and my scale has been a life saver for me-one of the best investments I ever made! (of course, I'm totally anal about weighing and measuring stuff, but I only got that way after I bought my scale bwahaha) emoticon

Best wishes and God's blessings on your fitness journey!

Take care~

In all honesty, about half of that is going to my church's "help pantry", which I stock 80%-90% of for them with my excessive couponing...it just occurred to me while I was convincing the grocery story to special order 10 cases of bacon for me that I've gone over the edge. :)
If you're really interested in couponing, I suggest checking out the website thekrazycouponlady.com, and reading through all of their beginner materials. It's how I learned the basics of couponing...and I took it to my own extremes from there. :)

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. Your words make a lot of sense. I would need to find something to do for just myself in this case since it's his friend who is here and I wouldn't want to take him away from them. I do need to learn just to do my own thing though. It's so hard when you know what you want to do and can't do it. I appreciate you showing me that my thinking is an accomplishment. Looking at it through your eyes I can see that. It is newly found for me though. Last week would not have been the same case. If you can see that in me then I don't think you are very far off from finding that yourself. Once you start eating better and working out I feel like it's a bit of a craving. I hope that you are able to find that yourself. If I can help in any way at all please let me know. I would love to be your sounding board or just a source of encouragement.. :)
