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!

I love my new scale. Luckily it switches between ounces and grams quite easily. Most of the time I use ounces unless spark doesn't have it then I use grams.

Ah yes. Figuring out your portions, or as I like to think about it "How I learned to stop worrying and love the gram."

Yes, I am a science geek and use grams all the time. Ounces I find challenging. But use what works for you!

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. emoticon

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.

Found one at the kitchen store for 30 bucks. Hated to spend that kind of money but it's a good one and it works.

I have a StarFrit Electronic Scale that was under $20. It has a Zero function so you can add a measuring bowl to the glass plate.

I have a Weight Watchers food scale and I really like it. It works like a normal scale, but then will also tell you how many points are in the foods. It has worked great for me!

I will do this! Goal will be mine in 2012!

P.S. YOU can do it, too!

Christy :)

Here is the scale that I bought on Amazon and it is highly accurate and does have a tare button. You will want a tare button. Makes life so much easier.

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.

I need a new food scale, mine is a cheap one and not at all accurate. Can anyone recommend a inexpensive scale. I don't want to spend a lot but want one that is reliable. Thanks
