I'll chime in with the absolute best cardio machine for a home gym - the Tony Little Gazelle. They're $130 new but you can always find one on Craigslist or wherever for $30. No motors, no computers - just a drop dead simple full body workout. Home elliptical machines are garbage and getting to the gym is hard.

Thanks everyone - I truly appreciate the responses! I plan to buy a food scale ASAP. Would anyone recommend a heart rate monitor to track calories burned?

Anything you buy is just a tool to help weight loss. Weight loss happens when you eat fewer calories than your body burns, so you don't need to buy anything unless it helps you do that.
- Food scale. Make sure you're actually eating in a deficit by weighing your food.
Useful, but not required:
- Bathroom scale
- Tape measure for taking your measurements.
- Any equipment/membership fees/etc. needed for exercise you like to do.- Weight trend app, like Happy Scale or Libra. The free versions are fine.

Kitchen scale. Twas a sad, sad day when i learned what a tbsp of peanut butter really looked like
