I am finding that I weigh everything put it all in grams most of the time and enter it into my food journal that way. I think I do this also so when I put together letts say like tuna salad today. I put it all in grams and when it's made I add up all the grams I added together in the bowl and divide it by serving I prepared so that I can portion out the right amount. Does this make sense? My husband thinks I'm crazy he says just grab a measuring cup and measure it. Am I being too anal about this whole thing. I tend to have a bit of OCD when it comes to certain things.

No, I do it by feel and it estimates a little. I have worked in a retirement home where they all measurement / weegde them and I know how much is about. I think if I go the roads then become a task of preparing food so I go in there to see.
