The Ozeri Touch Professional Digital Kitchen Scale

This digital scale is slim, portable and very simple to use. It is quite handy for weighing kitchen ingredients and planning out meal portions. But besides the usual kitchen stuff, I’m sure this scale is also very useful for weighing envelopes, packages and any other medium to small objects that you could think to weigh. Read all about its cool features and elegant design.

    Take the stairs instead of the elevator & park your car in the back of the parking lot. It will also help ease your mind by getting to places earlier & not rushing around.

    I have successfully cut out sodas from my life, but I haven’t been able to cut out one major thing. So that is my idea…going for two weeks without fried food. It will be tough, but it would be good motivation to try different dishes and try them different ways.

    I’ve been dieting for a few months now. (Lost 25 lbs. so far) My diet challenge is exercising. Getting the motovation, time and getting into a routine.
    Thanks so much.

    The suggestion to not eat after 6pm does wonders – but I often fail…

    Keeping a measuring glass and measuring spoons on the counter is really useful for keeping track of portion sizes and calories. It makes a big difference when you get to know what a serving size looks like. This scale would be very helpful in that regard as well!

    Portion control! It is definitely a challenge to eat smaller portions (use smaller plates). I have subscribed to your email. 🙂 Thanks!!

    A fun exercise (that is quite effective for the lazy person like me) is to do sit-ups during the commercial breaks on television!

    My idea is to double the benefits by doing anything healthy TWICE: when I need to go upstairs, make an extra trip down and up; when I walk around the block, walk around it again; eat 2X the healthy fruits and vegetables (so I won’t be hungry for the bad stuff!)., drink 2X as much water, etc.

    i do 10 minutes of exercise each time i have a snack craving. sometimes i change my mind about eating, sometimes i don’t, but it adds about 30 minutes a day of exercise to my day

    I have been on SO MANY diets… and honestly the best thing that has worked for me is just making sure I dont take in more calories than I will burn in a day! If I am in a lazy day kinda mood … well then I dont pig out on everything in sight! When I am running from here to there with our kiddos then maybe Ill have a little more to eat because I am burning all those extra calories! Eating healthy and organic is always good (but cheating with a lil fast food here and there isnt a bad thing either). AND STAY ACTIVE… if it means taking the stairs instead of the elevator or parking a little farther away in the big ol parking lot then that helps! You dont need a gym membership to be in shape! 🙂

    Walking 20-30 minutes at night with my boyfriend is really fun. We just talk and it goes by faster.

    I have recently started to make small changes. Instead of diet coke I now drink only water and coffee. I have been parking further away when I go shopping, so that I have to walk further. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’ve done this twice: no sugar/candy/sweets/dessert/soda/alcohol for an entire month or 3. I’ve done both… 1 month and 3 months. It does amazing things for the body!

    My idea is to a salad before the dinner to burn more quickly the calories and drink a lot of water and eat a lot of vegetables and fruits:)

    I saw this great pin on Pinterest – a workout tip jar! For every workout, tip yourself a dollar. Then once you start see results, use your tips to buy a new outfit! Now *that’s* motivation!

    I have lost 3 pounds in a couple weeks by eating a well-rounded breakfast with lots of whole grains within an hour of getting up in the morning and walking for 20 minutes in my neighborhood while pushing a stroller. Adding a little weight when walking raises your heart rate. I do this everyday, and it has given me a lot more energy during the day.

    I park a little ways away from the door when I go to the stores. That way I am rewarding myself for walking!

    I skateboard every night for 2 to 3 hours and switched to turkey burgers. In the past week I’ve lost about 7 pounds!

    Subscribed to blog. Maybe I could walk every day at lunch and only drink soda only on Fridays, as a special treat. I’m trying to avoid artificial sweeteners also. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

    I subscribe under kellywcuATyahooDOTcom and my idea is to substitute 1 meal a day with a fruit smoothie for a couple of weeks.

    Use a fitness app to count your calories for 1 month and get an idea of what foods actually have what calories so you can make better choices in the future.

    Find something active that you love to do, and do it. If it feels forced, you won’t stick to it and you won’t have any fun. Hate to run but love kickboxing? Hate pushups but love the treadmill? Go for it… and you’ll feel great!

    I have started pretending that every exercise I do, every healthy food I eat, and every completed chore will help ensure I won’t lose that muscle, internal organ, household item, etc. to the Zombie apocalypse! It’s really just become an ongoing exercise in gratitude. (No, I don’t think the apocalypse is coming… just a fun motivator for me) 🙂

    I challenge myself to keep up with my twelve year old daughter for a week. Where she walks, I walk, what she plays, I play.

    Walk everywhere you go and when you have to drive, park further away so you have farther to walk.

    Fitness Challenge: Each week, participate in at least 5 different fitness routines. Some examples : walking, swimming, biking, recumbent bike in gym, water aerobics, weights, etc. Variety is the spice of life!

    I am stuck in a rut right now and so I think I will start small, just challenging myself to drink more water every day for the next couple of weeks.

    When I diet I usually will not drink soda and just drink water. I also pick a day (after at least 6 days of dieting) and have a day where i eat one thing that I crave like I will have an ice cream cone etc. Doing this keeps me from getting bored with the diet.

    Cooking all your meals from scratch for 2 weeks. It gets you eating more fresh fruits and veggies and you feel full longer!

    I think it would be great to try the 99 fitness challenge I see going around Pinterest. You have a list of exercises and you do 99, then 88, 77, 66, etc. I think I might die trying, though!
