Is Irrepressible!! : )
Hello everyone!

I haven't been able to get online for awhile since the kids broke up from school. But I have enough time to ask a quick question.

When you have all been weighed and you update your tickers- which weight converter do you use?

Lovely Miss Brite usually sorts mine out with the miracle that is maths (I hate it) and always gets the same results as the pharmacy lady. However, this week due to time constraints I had to do it myself when I got home from work and used weightlossresources.co.uk.
Now, here in lies the problem. The weight converter said that I was 2lb lighter than the chemist and Miss Brite said. So I checked it with another one and it said the same. So I went through several million (exaggerating slightly me thinks!) others including the one on my mobile phone- and they all said the same. This is one of the reasons why I haven't posted my weight loss cos I don't know which one to go with!!

My choice is to go with the pharmacy- 3.5lb down
or go with the converter- which will put my weight at 11s 7lb (74.20kilos)

What would you do? xxx

So are you saying you think you have lost more than you thoufght OR that you originally weighed less than the chemist led you to believe ??:confused:

I definitely weighed in correctly- 13s 2lb (83.60 kilos) cos I checked all the way through with the weight converter. However week 1 WI I weighed in at 79.85 kilos, which according to the converter would be 12s 6lb- pharmacy said 12s 7.5lb.

Monday WI kilos were 74.20 according to converter I weigh 11s 7lb, the pharmacy said 11s 9.5lb- see what I mean??? I don't know what is right. My head tells me that I should probably go with the pharmacist and I suppose it seems really trivial, but I don't want my ticker to be lying!! (I put in the amount according to the weight converter)
It can't all be down to rounding up or down, you're talking about a few lbs !!! - Y not change your ticker to KG so there is no confusion and also if you have a sneaky peek at home ?? We know you wouldn't lie xx

I figured this out last night hun. You don't weight 11st 6lb you weight 11.6st which is not the same. I'll explain when I see you in a bit xx

according to my calculations it is 11st 9.5lbs. think the chemist is right, as rainbow said 11.6 stones is not the same as 11 stone 6lb, as there are 14 pounds in one stone.
