My Life In Kilograms

Living my life in kilograms is an aggravation, but it is my reality while living in London.  The first time I worked out on the elliptical a few months ago, the machine asked me for my weight.  I don't remember my exact weight, but it was somewhere around 250lbs.  So I entered in my weight, and the machine told me this was an invalid number.  It took me a minute to remember that life over here is in kgs- not in lbs- and that the machine thought that I was 550lbs.  I took out my Blackberry to figure out what my weight was in kilos (ahh, dividing by 2.2 is always fun).  Now as I lose weight, I always have to figure out the kg equivalent in order to get a (somewhat) accurate calorie count on the cardio equipment.  Today is the first time I have not weighted triple digits in kilos; today I got to enter 99- exciting!
  
Now check this out.  We fell back over the weekend, so it is dark an hour earlier.  I took this outside of my flat on the way home from the gym at 5:20pm- sad:(

I sympathize in kilos with you - I chart my progress in both but the pounds always make me feel better about my loss because the numbers are higher hahah

Oh look how dark! I'm not a fan of dark, cold or winter-but losing weight makes it all more tolerable I'm sure! And what a teensy number in kilos--any way you measure it, you're doing great!

It'd be easier if the U.S. would just convert to the metric system like I was promised we would back in 6th grade. I don't know about you (you were raised in the States, yes?) but I had to learn the metric system over and over and over again because the whole world was going metric *rolling eyes*
