If you google 'convert lbs to stones' it comes up with a stack of sites, some are nice and easy to use

Ok, multiply your whole stones by 14. then add the odd lbs to the number. That is your weight in lbs. Simple!

eg: 10st 7lb (I wish!) is -

10x14=140
+7 =147lb

In google, type in "140 pounds in stones" and it'll come up with 140 pounds = 14 stones

Otherwise, Taz's way is simplicity itself!

140lb is 10 stone?!

Or look on your phone, it might have a converter. But the sum is so simple

Taz is right!

14 lbs in a stone. So multiply your stones by 14. Then add the other lbs.

So...I'm 11stone8. 11x14=154 154+8 = 162lbs

You can type it into google - I do that for loads of conversion stuff and it works.

Hi Jez lol
I worked it out that the exact figure allowing for that half pound is 232.4 lbs
16 st .6 1/2 lb = 232.4lbs.

Google is a converter genius! In fact, I used it to convert my weight about 3 seconds ago! ^_^
