Cheap, good, digital food scale: [link]
It weighs your food so you know what you are eating.
i got an ozeri scale off of amazon. Cheap, digital, pretty precise, however only accurate to 2 grams. so dont think you can get accurate enough gram measurements for yeast/salt/small ingredients.
it measures in ounces as well, and can be tared.
If you don't have one in mind already take a look at this one.
It can be purchased at local retailers too but I'm a lazy prime member. I've been using it for a few years and it's a good scale. Inexpensive, easy to use, and dead accurate.

Eat what you like and log the calories. You can eat mayo, butter, and sweets and still lose weight. You just need to count the calories and ensure that on average you're at a calorie deficit. If you haven't already, read the Quick Start Guide, FAQ, Join MFP, and buy a cheap food scale from Amazon.
I wouldn't stress about macros for now. The only one I pay much attention to is protein because I feel less hungry throughout the day if I eat protein. Oil is fine, as long as it fits into your daily calories. Soy sauce is fine, unless you need to be on a low sodium diet for health reasons (hypertension, CHF, etc). You can eat anything you want as long as you count it in your calories.
I use this little guy here! It was around $20 CAD and it has saved me a lot of fuss at the post office.
I'm not sure if I have a bench scraper or bowl scraper, though I do have silicone spatulas. I've never used a banneton, but I recall a post in /r/Breadit that talked about a book discussing making improvised ones? I used to have cast iron pots, but we didn't really know how to take care of them and they rusted, so we got rid of them. I'm planning on purchasing a digital scale soon - this one is listed as the most popular one, but I'm not sure what to look for in a scale, aside from a large weight maximum, big weighing surface and easy to read display.
I'm in Canada, so Amazon.com won't work for me. The cast iron set you linked is only available at about a hundred bucks on the .ca site, which is too much for me.
