What?! I LOST WEIGHT ON HOLIDAY!!

Yes! For the first time EVER, I lost weight on holiday.

I went away on 24th December weighing 96.4kgs, and today I'm 95kgs!

So I now officially weigh 95kgs - 14stone 13 & 1/2pounds - 209.5lbs

The 14 stone 13 and 1/2 pounds is cool! Being under the 15 stone zone is a kick!!

It's strange that us Brits weigh in Stones and pounds, Americans use Pounds and Aussies and the continentals use kilograms. I wonder why or how that happened? I know the lines are blurred these days as more people use kilograms (like me), but I wonder why so many don't understand stones and pounds.

The reason I wonder this is that a lot of the population of the US and AUS were from the UK so I would have thought that they would have taken the UK's measurements with them… but maybe they wanted their own version? Or was there more people using KG's that went to AUS that swayed it?

The states though use pounds though, and thats not a european thing at all… hmmm.

I will have to look into the history of it a bit. Let me know what you think!
