    Hi, guys!

    REALLY stupid question here.

    Just had my first weigh-in & I've gone from 13.9st to 13.3st!

    I can't count so I'm really confused with how much I've lost.

    When I put my details into details/status into minimins (on the left) it says I've lost 8lbs.. But that can't be right? When I use an online calculator it says I've lost 6.

    Can anyone help me out here...? I'm a total numpty. Thanks! :p

    OK.

    If you were 13 stone 9 pounds to start that is a total of 191 pounds.

    You now weigh 13 stone 3 pounds, which is now 185 pounds.

    You have lost 6 pounds - well done!!


    The details you have in your statistics are wrong - this is where you are getting confused I think.

    Change that to a start weight of 191 pounds and take it from there.

    Maybe sticking to just pounds when you weigh might be less confusing?:)

    I am no good at numbers either, so don't worry!:D

    Ok 13st 9lb is....191lbs
    And 13st 3lb is....185lbs

    So you've lost 6lbs.
