Don't avoid weighing in.
For those who weigh in periodically on a regular schedule, never avoid weighing in simply because you fear the number.

You weigh what you weigh, whether you close your eyes to it or not.  And closing your eyes to the facts, makes it too easy to ignore what may be happening.

Weigh in.  Move on.

It wasn't, really!  You have a pass for 2 weeks due to your giant foot.  

I was really talking to myself.  As usual.  I don't want to go weigh in tomorrow.

Okay, I believe you.

I couldn't weigh in if I wanted to. It's impossible to put any weight on this foot!

I broke the rule!  I usually weigh in on Friday morning, but this week I gave myself a pass, the first one since May.  I had a bad reaction to a medication and spent Sat-Tues in pain, and then Wed-Fri laid up in bed!  I didn't exercise for 3 days straight, so while I didn't do too bad with eating, my activity was non-existent.

I felt it would be too stressful to weigh in, so I stayed off the scale.  I am getting much better, I feel great this morning and was able to work out again!  The down side is that I am on oral steroids for the next couple of weeks, and know that a big side effect is BIG appetite.  I am stocking up (even more than usual) on carrots and other vegetables, and won't buy any crackers or pretzels.  Hopefully, next week I can weigh in with minimum damage!!!

Steroids are the worst!  Appetite and water retention! Ouch!  I have asthma and have to take steroids sometimes.

I can pick up 10 pounds in a heart beat from a short course.  I have to remind myself its just water and will be gone, but its disheartening.
