Moley Moley Moley

From Austin Powers: "Mole. Bloody mole. We aren't supposed to talk about the bloody mole, but there's a bloody mole winking me in the face. I want to c-u-u-t it off, ch-o-o-p it off, and make guacamole. "

So I had 3 moles removed yesterday. No big deal. Just an office procedure. But before I went into the exam room, the nurse asked me to step on the stupid and surely 10 pounds off scale. Ack. I ask you, how is being weighed relevant in any way to having moles removed? So I inquired whether we could perhaps wait until after I had the moles eliminated to then get weighed. I might, after all, lose a few pounds of moley-ness in the process.

No such luck. And sure enough, that scale was 10 pounds too heavy. *Sigh*

I totally agree. What does weight have to do with the dermatologist, eye doctor or EENT doctor? I plan to boycott the scale at all doctor offices. It is now against my religion to step on the contraption.

I am glad to hear that your doctor's scale is just like my doctor's scale. What I don't understand is the fact that the scale we bought contends it is 100% accurate...I had the same procedure (ie. mole-ectomy) and they weighed me, too. Naturally, being the annoyed patient, I asked why they had to weigh me, and the nurse said it was just in case something happened and I needed meds...yeah, that made me glad I asked the question!

Regardless of the doctor's office, I always weigh 6 pounds more than I do on my home scale. Why is that?
