I just bought a electric scale from Walmart for 29.99. I think the brand is Good Cook. Finally found one w/in my budget. So far it works great, no complaints.

Anyways, man it sure does put perspective on portion sizes!! I serving of meat is supposed to be a deck of cards or about 2-3 oz...I defrosted a steak, thinking it would be about 2 servings...it was actually 3! (9 oz steak) I'm really amazed how small a real portion is and will relearn things now that I have this scale!

Don't use one, but I don't bake and don't diet (the two major reasons for owning one). Math and science are not my forte. I joke, but am serious, that I don't like to count anything. I seldom measure anything, even when I exercise (very regularly) I hate counting repetitions or wearing a watch to make sure I get XXX minutes of XXX in. I'd always considered this a huge failing, but approaching my 50th birthday, I simply work around it. Some things aren't going to change!!! Truth be told, I've even given up weighing me, and it's made no difference in my weight, just my happiness in life.
