I placed my measuring utensils within reach. When you are use to a little dab of this, a pinch of that, getting use to measuring everything was a pain. Forget digging for them. Now that they are right in front of me I tend to use them more.

Digital Food Scale & Measuring Spoons on Kitchen Counter.
I keep a small Tray on the kitchen counter,with The Digital Food Scale ,several Measuring Cups,and 2 sets of Measuring Spoons.I am much more diciplined to use all these tools when there is Multiple Sets,and within easy reach,no need to wash/rinse utensils after each use.Also when measuring "Tare" on The Food Scale,sometimes i use a piece of "Saran Wrap" instead of a plate for easy use and clean up.25848553
The Digital Food Scale is my best friend!30
Buy a child's plate (divided into three segments) and child's utensil set. When you use a child's portion plate, you are more likely to get the correct portion sizes. The smaller utensils will force you to take smaller bites. Smaller bites will allow you to eat more slowly and you will begin to feel fuller faster.
Children's plates / utensils are inexpensive.
