    Hiya

    Quick question, is it more accurate to weigh in on the scales in pounds & ounces or Stones and pounds?

    Its just i am considerably lighter in lbs and ounces!

    Also this will sound silly but if it says 166.8 how do i work it out in stones & pounds?

    I would rather use stone and pounds. Oz is a little random as it can change in the space of 10 minutes

    There are 14 pounds in a stone and 16 ounces in a pound if that helps :)

    Thanks everyone ,

    i think i will keep to my Stones & pounds as it said i was 11.13lbs which i think is more acurate than 11.9 (166.8) as i was 12.0lb monday!! dont think i have lost 5lbs in 3 days!

    I wish.... :) Still over the moon that i read in the 11s ,havent seen 11 something for about 2 years!:D:D Although i shouldnt even be peeking as i dont weigh in till monday!

    Im getting into naughty habbit of weighing wid week.... must stop!!

    That would give you it 0.9 of a stone which would be 1.4 lbs x 0.9

    0.9 means 9/10ths of a stone - not 9lbs.
