Tuesday, I had a regular follow up appointment at the doctor to go over recent test results, check vitals and all that rot. First thing they do, of course, is take your current weight. I was more than pleased to hop up on that scale because I know it was much less than the last time I'd been there..

I take off my coat, shoes, empty my pockets into my purse, remove glasses, bracelet and get on up there to see great results!.

The nurse then chuckled and said something like, "We women remove everything we can get off when we get weighed, but men just step on there, even in steel toed boots, change and phone in their pockets, backpacks, you name it.".

Gave me a little chuckle and hope it does you, too...

So true, I even try to wear "lighter" clothes to the doctor before I go in case they don't let me take my shoes off..

I, too, work in a doctor's office. I can attest to the above statement. I actually have women take off their jewelry! Men... not so much...

Comment #2

I'd get naked if it were socially acceptable!! Instead, I wear the lightest clothes possible (and weigh myself at home in said clothes before the appt)!..

Comment #3

If we have extra weight we call it muscle So the more we have in or pockets the better..

My husband told the nurse weighing him at the doctors office that he had on new shoes and they weigh more than old ones when she said that he had gained five pounds since his last visitHe was serious and thought that was a valid reason for the extra five pounds. I laughed for a while.....

Heck my DH weighs himself before Thanksgiving dinner and then again after and laughs at the gain! His brothers do the same, Thanksgiving tradition. LOL The girls wouldn't even think about weighing before in front of people!!..

When I watch the biggest loser I always marvel at the fact that the women are wearing big clunky jewelry! But then I think.

About it and that's probably not a real scale they are on, they probably weighed in that morning...
