Food Scale
I use a postal scale - totally without batteries or other power devices. It just weighs, and after all, an ounce is an ounce. How often do we get to eat a pound of anything - lol!

Weight ticker on posts
Thanks for your help! Oddly enough, this time when I look at the post, it has updated my weight. Unfortunately, that's the truth - lol. There must just be a serious time delay, because I checked several times this morning, and not! Thanks again!
