    Ok, So I have lost 27lbs - to me that is 1lb off 2 stone, yeah? I was 15 Stone 5lbs when I started so when I hit 13 Stone 5lbs I would normally say that I have lost 2 Stone - but 13 Stone 5 to 15 Stone 5 is 30 lbs! Confuzzled! :confused: How do you calculate your stones lost?

    Hiya,

    Maths in the morning! :)

    14lbs in one stone.

    15s 5lb to 15st = 5lb
    15st to 14st = 14lb
    14st to 13st 5lb = 9lb

    Add them up....28lb divide by 14 = 2stones! :)

    Hope that helps.

    Here is where you are going wrong

    you said (but 13 Stone 5 to 15 Stone 5 is 30 lbs! Confuzzled) this is where you have gone wrong, your calculation should be 13 stone 5 - 15 stone 5 is 2 stone which = 28lbs.

    I get weighed in kilos.... I hate that!!! But Reena (my pharmacist) converts it for me each time. 1 lb sounds so much more than 1/2 a kilo!!!!

    Yeah my pharmacy also weighs me in kg's but converts it for me! :D

    1st = 14lbs honey.
    So when you have lost 28lbs thats 2st.
    If you have lost 30lbs thats 2st 2lbs.
