Oh My Holy Heck....

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Kilos are definitely my friend. When I weigh in kilos, I can avoid what I really weigh because I don't translate math well. I can focus on my current weight (in those mysterious kilos) and how much I've lost in kilos...which I then translate to pounds.

Today I stepped on the scale - I weigh each day, good or bad... - and the scale had been switched from kilos to pounds. First I thought the battery was going bad, then I squinted closer and saw my weight in pounds. Ack!

So glad I started being better last week. I'd really be depressed if I was just standing at the beginning and looking down the long road ahead. But...I am feeling good, the way I'm eating is satisfying and nutritious, I'm off to a good start.

    I was using stones for a while (1 stone = 14 lbs)

It really helped because although I don't know kilos, it takes forever to lose one!

    I weigh in using kilos too and then convert...I agree, kilos are easier to take because I don't have any negative associations with them. I'm glad you are feeling good and happy with your diet.

    I remember when I was a kid and it was common knowledge that we would be on the metric system in a few years. We still aren't and I now don't get kilos.

    It's an eye opener when you find out your loss in pounds. I weight in pounds, but I could just imagine being used to a weight in kilos, then go to pounds. I'd worry first then, be happy for the loss.
