Weighty Issues

Why is it that scales at a doctor's office always weigh us heavier than anywhere else? When I go to calculate my BMI, do I use the weight on my doctor's scales or my home scale?

I have had two doctor appointments over the past three months. At one doctor, I was measured at 5 feet 4.5 inches tall. That shocked me because I have always thought I was 5 feet 5 inches. Yesterday, I was measured at 5 feet 5.25 inches! I've never been told I'm that tall.

There is probably no way to know which measurements are most accurate. So, do I just pick and choose the measurements that make me happy?
