Thanks for the response. It's more of a good piece of information to know than anything else.
I figure I've got two choices if I want more accurate measurements: Buy calipers and use the caliper measurements I can do by myself (no one to help with the caliper) or paying $50 for a Dexa scan at a local clinic to see the degree of difference between it and the tape measurement method.
