I was just reading a few posts and i thought I'd mention the following....

A lot of us on here, have had problems with the chemists telling us the wrong losses/weights due to conversions from either pounds to kilos or kilos to stones, which ever the problem doesn't help you much when each loss helps you through The following week....

My chemists scales weigh in kilos, so what ever they tell me I've lost in lbs I ignore.... I get home and use an app to keep all my losses and stuff in, it even gives me a fancy graph and statistics lol I also have another app that checks my conversions... I use that conversion for my stones and pounds....

Hope this helps someone or anyone lol
I know it confused me and others when I was on LT last year xx

I don't do imperial and my pharmacists' scale is in kilos so I'm happy but I can imagine that it is confusing for you Imperial users :)

Amanda,
My pharmacist scales only shows kg on the display. She then gets out a folder with all the conversions in it from kg into stones & lbs. Is this where the problem is with people being told the wrong weight losses??
She always lets me see the display on the scales and to look up the conversion in the folder with her. I hope it's all been accurate so far or i think i would cry lol xx

That's exactly what mine was doing, looking in a folder... So I just go by what's in the screen of thd scales... ie the kilos, then do thd conversion yourself Hun xx
