I bought mine ages ago at Ikea. It converts grams and ounces, resets to zero if you want to put a plate n top and just measure the food and is compact enough to slide under the microwave. Awesome tool!

So I FINALLY bought a scale about a week ago and man it is a good thing I did......I didn't realize how much I was overestimating on my protein amounts. Things that I thought was about 5-6oz was really about 8 oz.
I just recently broke down and bought the weight watchers scale. My old one was my best friend and now I have a new best friend in the kitchen. I measure everything,.
Life is to short to worry about the small stuff. Live life one day at a time and enjoy yourself. Give yourself a few minutes to reflect on the mistakes but look for ways that you can change for the better.
I use it daily and have probably had it for over a year. Gave it as a christmas present to someone else in 2010 and then bought me one soon after, if I remember right.

HI, I have a Cibo food scale... I don't remember how much I paid for it but I just looked on line @ Target and it is around $60.... I LOVE mine... it measures in 3 ways, lb/oz and grams and I forget the middle one :) it has a TARE option so I can set my bowl on there press and button to get it to 0 and measure the item only and it is fairly easy to use... I only use those two options but it does many other things as well
Loving yourself is the KEY to losing weight!! Keep a positive attitude by thinking more about the future than the past.
