How can one Dr visit make such a big change so fast?

I called to get a mamo to follow up on my cancer,( which I should have done over a year ago), anyway they wouldn't do one unless I had a Dr to read the results (I canned my old Dr of 7 yrs) so I went to see new Dr Friday/yesterday.

I have an appmt to get the new mamo Tues Dec 21st, another appmt/test for colon cancer the 1st part of Jan, & follow up mid Feb w/new Dr.
"IF there is anything wrong in the results of any of the blood work we took today & or any of the other tests you took or will be taking, we will call you in sooner to discuss the treatment path we would like you to take".

The one good part is that the Dr told me that I was doing an extremely good job loosing weight and toning up with diet and exercise + lifestyle change.

===YA! BUT, the part they didn't know and really shocked me was to find our my home scale did NOT even come close to reading what the Dr's scale said!!

NOW I am depressed! Really BUMMED! It make me rush home, change my scale to match what theirs had read, Also re-took my measurements, which also confirmed what the scale had read,,,, AUCKKK!! So I re-entered my new information onto my Spark areas to see how much I regressed so quickly, AND here it is.

Since my scale has been wrong for over a year, -whatever it's 'fixed' now-
I am 13 pounds heavier than I thought I was AND have gained 3 inches in both my waist and hips.

WHY don't my clothes not fit?! I'm still wearing the same jeans and people tell me how good I look = I don't get it! It can NOT be THAT much muscle, especially if I'm bigger in my waist & hips! True I have been lifting and have toned arms, but am no body builder (laughing at that thought !!)

So here I am heavier than a sack of potatoes in just one day than I thought I was + I find out my waist and butt is bigger and am facing having my boobs cut on again (if not off this time), hell who knows now.

    I know - if it makes you feel better, mine was off by 20 lbs and I had a "dr scale" too!

    Now I am using a WW Digital Scale (Big Lots has them but I bought at Costco almost 3 years ago).

    Relax, you are doing great! So the number was off - at least you are doing a fantastic job!

    Merry Christmas and enjoy your new chainsaw - just be really careful out there!

    Love you,

    If anyone can make all of this into a positive experience, it's you. Think positive and just keep moving forward! Things will always work themselves out!

    Doctor scales are always higher. If your clothes still fit the same there is no way you gained 13 pounds. Anyway keep on toning and taking great care of yourself. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You know, I have often pondered that. We are advised to weigh in first thing in the morning, naked, so that the readings are accurate, yet I have yet to find a doctor's office that lets you strip down! Stands to reason that I like my own readings better. Of course, I'm looking for different things than a doctor's office would be!

    Here's hoping all your tests come back negative. emoticon

    I hope when you reset your scale that you were wearing the same clothes that you had on when you weighed at the doctor's office. I am well aware of the phenomena . . . and it is frustrating. Regarding the clothes, I think you really are more muscular now. Look at all your fitness minutes if you need corroboration!
