    Hi all,

    Just out from my 4th weigh in and the chemist says I am down 1lbs ... I know its a loss but so little I'm very sad now.

    She weighs we in kg and then converts to stones so last week I was 86.85 kgs and this week I am 85.15 kgs ... So I'm
    Confused I thought there was 2.2 lbs in every kg?

    Do last week she told me I was 13st 08lbs and this week I am 13st 07lbs?

    Does anyone know if this is right or if I really only lost only 1 lb!!
    Seems so low for 100% and swimming a few nights in the week??!!

    Ok so I've been obsessing since getting weight and the chemist has been get the conversion wrong all along!! Bit annoying.

    So to my loss were not as big as they had indicated week 1 & 2 in the chemist. But on a positive my loss is steady .. And I haven't only lost 1 lb this week which would have been very demoralising. stupid girl!!


    Week 1 : -8.003
    Week 2 : -6.6359
    Week 3 : -4.1667
    Week 4 : -3.7479

    Total loss in 4 weeks: 22.5535 lbs

    Happy with that just loss it's still brill!

    The messing has dampened my mood as I was hoping to reach the 12 stones by the wedding so I would need to lose 10lbs in 3 weeks to be 12,13!! Fingers crossed!

    (I know it's only a number but my confidence would be boosted to see it!)

    Sorry for the long post just ranting on!

    I work that out as just under 4 lb you were 191.1 lb and down to 187.4 I think they must have messed up when converting

    Sounds like the pharmacist needs to go on a maths course. You should weigh yourself from home as well at least you will be able to see the weight loss in stones and pounds. You've done brill so far so don't get upset, you watch next week your hard work will pay off for youx

    I think the problem comes from using a converter rather than using a table or doing the math. When you enter 10st 5lb as 10.5 into a converter it is seeing 10 and a half stone rather than 10 stone and 5lb. At least thats what the phone app i was using had been doing.
