    Why can't charts (as in bmi) tickers or anything use stones and lbs!!! It would be sooooo much easier! :confused:
    This is one of my biggest bug bears when on a diet... it takes ages to faff with cinverting stuff!

    yeah - my pharmacy have just got new scales that only do kilos and then their new computer doesn't convert to pounds!!!! Argh!! You'd think they'd have a poster doing the conversions or something...

    Defo more room to bring stuff back! We had to buy another suitcase when we went away!

    I do my ticker in kgs coz that's what the pharmacist weighs me in, but, as soon as I get home after WI, I always work it out in stone and pounds.

    Also, my target loss in kgs seems a lot less than in pounds! 55.7kg to lose sounds better than 122.54lb!
