3. I think you would multiply it by 2.2 to get the number of pounds.
4. makes sense....at first i was getting my conversion factors all messed up....35.2 lbs sounds a lot better than 7!!

thanks
5. 1kg = 2.2lbs

If you had 162kg, then that means you have 356.4lbs. Remember, you always weight less in kilograms!

Are you a big Parker Posey fan or do you just like that movie? She is such a good actress!

I love Parker and I love that movie! No one has ever commented on it before. I was beginning to wonder if it was offending people or if no one else ever saw "Party Girl"!

As stated, you multiply.

Remember, your weight will always be a lesser number in metric.

So, if you're caring for a 162 kg woman, you better get some help in turning her. She's a big gal!
