Now that I am at a point where the weight is not just falling off - weighing my food and knowing exactly what I'm doing is key! It's also amazing how knowing this actually does make you feel full and not that you are being cheated!
I bought a small food scale at Bed Bath and Beyond for only $20 and it's worked for over a year now.

I recently bought a food scale because I was having a hard time knowing what is considered a reasonable portion. I use it pretty much every day! I have found it very helpful because often times, we may think that we're eating the "right" amount of food but are usually over indulging. I use the scale to measure my nuts, fruits, rice/quinoa before eating.
