I did not use a kitchen scale to lose weight. I did use a good set of measuring cups and spoons. I did buy a scale when I was transitioning to maintenance so I could monitor my gradual increase from a caloric deficit to maintenance. I continue to use a kitchen scale and would recommend using one.

I grew up overweight. At age 16, I had surgery to remove tonsils and dropped 14 lbs in two weeks. After a few months, I had lost nearly 40 lbs. I kept the weight off for a number of decades, but I stopped exercising and eating healthily. By 2010, I was 70 lbs above the maximum healthy BMI for me (i.e. 169.3 lbs). I consciously reduced excess carbohydrates and fat (such as garlic toast and deep-fried breaded food) and just started walking more; over two years I slowly lost 40 lbs. At the beginning of Summer 2013, I decided it was high time to lose the rest of the weight, so I really started using myfitnesspal on a regular basis.
