    Hi everyone. Just thought it best to introduce myself and say hi before thinking about diving in and making a few posts. I joined because I don't want to feel alone in my struggles and, as we know, having MI's can sometimes be quite an isolating kind of life. Anyway, it's nice to be here and...

    pounds, kilograms, stone ?

    I live in the U.S. and we all use pounds (and ounces.....16 ounces in a pound) over here as the unit of weight most of the time. We are very, very slowly switching over to kilograms.
