Lost 5 stone on Lighter Life and 1 1/2 on Exante! - Put about 2 1/2 stone back on so back to Exante!
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?

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!!
