ADVICE:

If you are accustomed to using the metric system:you think in METERS, you may need to use the chart I've included below in order to calculate your height (estatura) in feet and inches. If you think in KILOS, you should figure out your weight (peso) in pounds. Do this before you open the link.

Measuring your height in FEET & INCHES and your weight in POUNDS
1 foot = 12 inches
1 meter = 100 cm = 39.5 inches = 3 feet 3.5 inches = 3’3.5”
Example: Multiply your height in centimeters by 39.5 inches:
1m 70= 1.70 cm x 39.5 = 67.2 inches = 5 feet 7 inches
Figure out how tall you are/your height and ………………………….say:
1m50cm = 59.3 inches = 4 feet 11.3 inches = 4’ 11.3”-------I’m 4-11
1m60cm = 63.2 inches = 5 feet 3.2 inches == 5’3”-----------I’m 5-3
1m 65cm= 65.2 inches = 5 feet ========= =5’0”-----I’m 5 feet tall
1m70cm = 67.2 inches = 5 feet 7.2 inches= = 5’7”-----------I’m 5-7
1m80cm = 71.1 inches= 5 feet 11.1 inches =5’11”-----------I’m 5-11
2 meters= 79 inches = 6 feet 7 inches=== = 6’7” ----------I’m 6-7

Measuring your weight in Pounds = lbs
1 kilo= 2.2 pounds /lbs
Example: Multiply your weight in kilos by 2.2 lbs ---65 kilos x 2.2 = 143 pounds/lbs

50 kilos = 110 pounds/lbs
60 kilos = 131 pounds
75 kilos = 165 pounds
80 kilos = 176 pounds
85 kilos = 187 pounds
100 kilos= 220 pounds

Have fun!
