Lol, our scales are old to and no I don’t really actually measure foods. I do once in awhile but usually I do the whole ‘oh this looks like so many grams so it is’ type of a thing. I don’t really do that with my sister though, I actually measure out her food, because I’d feel bad if I made a mistake and her levels were bad. When my mom is home she takes over the diet but when it’s just my dad I have to help with the diet becuase he works night shifts so he sleeps plus even if he is awake he does the whole guess thing, but the difference is he’s really really bad a guessing. He can look at something that is 1 cup and think it’s only 1/4 cup. nBreanna
