    As you know I lost only 1lb this week. She measures me in kg and uses a LT weight conversion thingy and writes it down in my card in stones and lbs.

    Now when I convert the kilos into pounds myself there is a 4lb difference.

    Confused.:confused:

    My weight is 100.6 kg - she put me down as 15.12 and I work it out to be 15.8

    Who's right?

    (Ps my scales at home afterwards said 15.10)

    good old maths will sort it.

    there are 2.2lb in a kg so at 100.6kg = 221.3lb round up to 221.5lb for ease.

    there are 14lbs in one stone so 221.5 divided by 14 (pounds in a stone) = 15.82 stones, not to be confused with 15 stone 8lbs...

    15 times 14 (pounds) = 210lbs, leaving 11.5lbs

    so you weigh 15 stone and 11.5lbs.

    BUT NOT FOR LONG!!!!

    as the LT fairy will shrink you!

    good luck

    dont worry i bet you will have a cracking weight loss this week, just remember to keep drinking loads of water, it does help with fat loss, your body needs it to metabolise fat.

    have at least 2 litres, maybe 3.

    OMG You have lost more than 1 stone in less than 3 weeks - That is truly amazing

    Ignore the 1 lb loss, it is a blip, and focus on the whole picture

    WELL DONE x

    Chele, don't get disheartened. I drank an average of 3.5L of water a day (excluding any coffee or shakes) and didn't cheat at all last week and I only lost 1.65lb. It isn't even my totm! My scales still haven't moved but I live in hope of a better loss this week.

    We will do better, although it looks like I'm going 2 weeks until my next WI.

    Good luck babe.

    Sometimes your body just needs a week or so to catch up ... i had 2 weeks of 1lb losses.... you have lost loads and it will pck up again really soon!
