Starting the New Year with a weight loss resolution? Learning about how much to eat can be as important as learning what types of foods to eat, but can be one of the more challenge parts of dieting since it’s just human nature to underestimate (or ignore) how much we’re consuming.

The hubby and I are are starting the New Year with a super helpful tool to aid us on our weight loss journey: the EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale. While we’re on Nutrisystem, we’re using it to measure our grocery add-ins of Power Fuels, Smart Carbs and Extras and will rely on it even more when we transition from the portion-controlled Nutrisystem meals and start cooking on our own again!

I’d never used a kitchen scale before but we’re already finding it really helpful in getting through the holiday eating season without doing too much damage. I mean do YOU actually know how much 2 oz of Fruitcake is? We didn’t either but the hubby and I received some from fruitcake my mom made from my Nana’s special recipe, and we definitely wanted some but didn’t want to stray too far off track from the diet. I Googled to see how many calories were in Fruitcake and came up with about 200 calories for 2 oz. I checked my meal planner and decided to have a slice instead of a Nutrisystem Dessert that day. The EatSmart Kitchen Scale helped me to make an informed choice about what to eat without feeling deprived OR going overboard.

I was pretty close with my guess when I cut a slice, which is another thing I’m loving about the scale. It helps to train you to visualize proper portions. That’s helpful at restaurants, parties or any food situations away from home! We’re still in training though and relying heavily on the scale to stay on track.

Weighing In On EatSmart Precision Plus Digital Bathroom Scale

If you’ve been following along so far, you know that Woof Woof Papa and I are on a weight loss journey, thanks to the Nutrisytem Program. You can catch up on our updates and check on our progress by following me on Twitter and watching for the hashtag #NSNation, or by clicking Nutrisystem from the menu bar at the top of my blog!

To keep on top of our weight and measure our progress, we’ve been using a fantastic new bathroom scale from EatSmart. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never had a healthy relationship with a bathroom scale. The last few I tried using drove me so crazy that I either returned them or threw them out. It’s bad enough to have to deal with weight issues without the extra stress of an inaccurate scale that says a different weight every time I stepped on it – even just 5 minutes later! I know that you are only supposed to weigh yourself once a week but be honest…who does that!?!


Anyway, the Precision Plus Digital Bathroom Scale is the scale we’re using now and I love how modern and sleek it looks! It’s also really simple to keep clean since it’s got a nice, shiny top that wipes down easily. It’s also very easy to use. Just step on and weigh in. No tapping on it or waiting for it to auto-calibrate like some other scales we’ve tried.
