I just bought a digital food scale at Walmart. It was less than $20 and I love it! It makes figuring out dinner a LOT easier than the eyeball method!
This is the one I bought: http://www.walmart.com/ip/35854316?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=2222222222702498802 1&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=40345724432&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl 6=78310703912&veh=sem
As far as scales go to weigh myself, I have had the same digital scale at my house for years. I use that one. On the day of my first weigh in, I weighed myself right before I left the house to go to my weigh in. I wrote the weight down and then compared it with what my coaches scale said. My scale showed that I was 4 pounds lighter than what my coaches scale showed so anytime I weigh myself at home, I add 4 pounds. However, I try not to weigh myself too too often. It can be a big mental pysch out. I weigh myself in the middle of the week and then the day of my weigh in...just so I know what to expect.
