I'll jump in on this thread, too! I just bought a new scale that stores my weight, and will tell me how much I've lost. Bed, Bath, & Beyond - use the 20% coupon.
They had a Biggest Loser Scale, too, but I liked this one better. Now I want to get a food scale to help with my portion sizes - I am out of control! I like the suggestion of using a smaller plate - trick my eyes into thinking I'm eating more. I too am a member of the clean-plate club - my grandma would be proud.
Anyway, I enjoy this thread - keep up the encouragement, ladies. We're doing great!
