Does anyone's Doctor Scale actually take pounds off?
Because I'm convinced that my Doctor's scale always adds 5!
I think this is a conspiracy.
I'll be writing to my Senator.

I agree! I don't let it bother me though because I figure I'm always going at the end of the day and that's got to add on a few ounces.

On the doc scale, you're probably wearing clothes and have ate/drank food. At home, you're probably undressed and have just slept all night and then used the restroom.
8oz of water weigh about a pound. Clothing can weigh 5lbs or more, depending on the size and thickness of material.
When I go to the doc, they'll weigh me, and instead of comparing the number to what I saw at home, I'll ask them what I weighed there the year before. If it's lower, I know I did good that year.

I'm right there with ya! When they weight me at the DR's office I always look away and tell them "I work too damn hard at this to be discouraged with the number on YOUR scale, so please don't tell me!" LOL! Really, I do that now!

I'm always 2-3 lbs heavier at the dr's for exactly the PP reasons: eating/drinking, clothing etc. But I love that every time I go (I have to go every 4 weeks....long story), I weigh less and the nurse never fails to make a supportive comment about it. So it may not be the same number as my home scale, but in their records I've lost the same amount!

Mine adds 10...no joke the Nurse told me...
Monday, April 07, 2008, 3:07 PM
Ugh. Hate that scale. Last month the doc scale read 8.5 pounds heavier than my own! Ok, so I know I already had a couple meals, liquids, etc and had clothes & shoes on...but wow! Hard to not go away totally dejected lol!

I agree. I went to the doc today. It added two. I work at a health center (mental) and weighed myself this morning. This afternoon I weighed and I was up two pounds. Its a conspiracy!! LOL

At all my prenatal visits I'd be 10 - 15 lbs heavier than m scale and after I had my baby it was still 5 - 10 lbs off. It is a killer for the selfesteem when you work so hard and see 10 lbs more than you thought you were, especially when I thought I was finally lighter than my husband and the Dr's scale said otherwise.

Since buying the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars last year for $770 million
Wholesale Jerseys 2016
, auto-parts billionaire Shahid Khan has been trying to revive one of the NFL's worst teams. He's brought in new coaches and players. He's upgraded team facilities and added fan amenities
Philadelphia Eagles Jersey
. And this fall, he's sending the Jags onto the field with a dramatic new look: a menacing logo, a striking two-tone helmet, and a completely redesigned jersey. "It's got to look cool," Khan says of the attire. "We want to signify this is a new direction, a fresh start. We need more fans."
Overhauling uniforms as a way to amp up enthusiasm and merchandise sales is an increasingly popular strategy in the pro-sports world. In recent years, teams such as the NBA's Brooklyn Nets
San Diego Chargers Jersey
, MLB's Toronto Blue Jays, and the NFL's Seattle Seahawks have generated buzz with eye-catching reboots, and the pace of such face-lifts only seems to be increasing. "Redesigns have always been a part of sports
San Francisco 49ers Jersey
, but things are different now," says Paul Lukas, creator of Uni Watch, a popular blog that covers "athletics aesthetics." For one thing, there's more at stake: Annual merchandise revenue for the NFL, MLB, and NBA is at record levels, with the NFL alone raking in an estimated $9.5 billion in total revenue
St. Louis Rams Jersey
. And teams must now work harder than ever to attract fans' endlessly divided attention.
For the Jaguars' redesign, Khan worked with Nike, which last year began making NFL uniforms as part of a reported $1.1 billion deal that lasts through 2016
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey
. (The company is also behind the less-bold 2013 uniform tweaks for the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings.) The goal was to create something flashy and different, but not too radical for either the team's supporters or the NFL, which has to approve all uniform-design changes (the league designs logos itself). "We err on the side of evolution, as opposed to revolution, which is where we have a healthy debate going with
Tennessee Titans Jersey
," says Leo Kane, the NFL's senior vice president of consumer products. "We've encouraged them to push us."
The helmet's unique design fades from matte black in front to shiny gold in the rear.
Nike's Jags jersey is made out of
Washington Redskins Jersey
high-tech stretch material that hugs the torso for a sleek look but still offers the necessary range of motion.
An armed-forces-style badge is a nod to Jacksonville's sizable military community.
The belt adds hidden padding
2015 Super Bowl XLIX
, which could help players avoid hip pointers, a common injury.
When a player interlaces his hands just the right way, the gloves create a single image, the team logo.
After the Jaguars requested a new look in March 2012
2015New Style Noble Fashion
, the NFL's marketing group and team officials got to work on a creative brief that would guide the process. "We explored, What is the essence of the brand?" says Kane. "What is the personality? What do fans think?" One of the new uniform's key elements is a military-style badge that's attached to the front of the new jersey—a nod to the 12% of Jacksonville's population with ties to the armed forces
2015 Pro Bowl
. The helmet, a groundbreaking design with a matte-black finish in front that fades into shiny gold in back, is meant to evoke the hunting style of a big cat, which stalks its prey in the shadows before pouncing. And the new team logo features a less-goofy jaguar head than the original, introduced in 1995. "We heard 'The cat has an overbite' or 'It looks like a cartoon,'" says the Jags' Khan. "You listen. That is vital. Where is the threshold where
you hit some nerves and offend fans? You want to respect the history, even though it may be short."
