Terminology

I've looked through the terminology section, I'm sorry if I overlooked this and it was in there, but when people say "I'm 10 Stone" or something like that, what does that mean?

Secondly, how do you determine what you are at?

Thanks,
Mimic

    I'm 10 stone means I weigh 140 lbs.
    1 stone = 14 lbs
    1 lb = 2.2 kg
