The Incredible Shrinking Woman

Most woman dread going to the doctor and standing on that darn scale.  
I am "most woman."

However, after my latest doctor visit it wasn't the horizontal number that bothered me. Yeah, I'm sure it was slightly higher than I would like, but after the nurse told me my other number, my vertical number, I promptly forgot about my weight. 

You see, for as long as I can remember when people ask me how tall I am I always say 5'3", even my license has that height then again it also says I'm 1** and goodness knows that's not true.  I honestly don't know where I got that number.  I assume at some point I was measured and the number stuck, but who knows.  

But, when the nurse told me that my height was 5' 1 3/4", I was flabbergasted.  How could that be?  I mean I know I'm short, but that is shorter than short. Three weeks later it's still bothering me, hence this post!

So learn from me ladies.
Not only should you not trust that darn scale at the doctors office, but be careful because the height measure thingy may lie too!
