    Well today I had my first weigh in and I went from 16.5 to 15.9 stone (yay go me! :) )
    So as my LLC said that's a 10ib loss.

    So was very excited and came back to Minimins to share the news!
    Went to change my weight on the side of my posts
    <--------
    And had to convert it to pounds.
    So 16.5 stone became 231ibs
    and 15.9 stone became 222.6ibs
    So 231-222.6 = 8.4ibs what happened to the other 1.6ibs?!

    Then on my weight ticker which is in kilograms I went from 104.7kg to 100.9kg...which is a 3.8kg loss which is 8.4ibs as well!

    Am I being a complete idiot? Have I lost 10ibs or 8.4ibs? :confused:

    Hello! I used this website Mass and Weight conversion online. and then tried a couple others, and they all say that 16.5 is 231ibs.

    But your calculations make more sense!

    Theyll be counting 16.5 as 16 and a half stones (16.7)

    Best thing is to multiply the stones by 14 and add the lbs :)

    Thank you Flexiblefish and Preeti77!!
    Yeah felt a bit let down when it went down to 8.4ibs...but then thought that's crazy, i'd never lose 8ibs in a week on any other diet, let alone 10ibs!!
