    IV noticed some of us weigh in kg others lbs n some stone

    Therefore wanted to say

    1 stone is 14lbs
    1 kg is 2.2lbs

    Hope this makes sense n will be of benefit to someone x

    I weigh in kg for 2 reasons, firstly it's what our surgery weighs in, secondly it sounds less to lose lol x

    I weigh in kg and convert to pounds for mfp. 1 lb lost sounds better than 0.5kg so I use whichever unit sounds better if I reach a milestone in either I celebrate.

    I prefer stones and pounds bug doc does kgs so I use both but stones is more realistic . I use a converter on my phone but tbh it's not always correct do I've got a paper prong out chart I use that I keep in my handbag
