I don't measure like I should. I know how much cold cuts I use, based on the number of slices and the weight when I start the package. Beyond that, I rarely measure anything. Every so often, I go back and reaquaint myself with the "Portion Distortion" slideshow, so that I can recalibrate. I measure liquids, though. And I do try to stick with packages of foods that I can easily (mentally, if not literally) divide into appropriate size portions. For example, if I buy a 1 pound package of pork chops, I look for one with 4 equally sized chops in it. Then I know they are all about 4 ounces before cooking.
I want a digital scale. Everytime I go to Target, I look longingly at the scales. And then I think about the size of my kitchen and I walk away.
I may be ashamed that I eyeball amounts but, it is working, so I can't sweat it too much.
