I have been keeping a second bathroom scales in the kitchen. Every time I think I want a snack I step on the scales. I bought a second hand, retro-looking scales at the thrift store and it looks comical in the kitchen, but I like it that way. Life's too short. It's working for me so far.
Maybe some Sparkers might want to keep the scales in the dining room or living room. I cook so most of my food is in the kitchen. Just a thought.
