Default Guilt about missing a meeting

So, I had it all planned to get up and go to my WW weigh-in/meeting this morning at 8. There are two weigh-ins/meetings in my town, Wednesday morning and Wednesday evening. I try to go in the mornings because I'm on call at work, and nine times out of ten I end up working on Wednesday nights.

But this morning, it's -24 with a wind chill of -44. *L* There's a windchill warning in effect for my area, and I could not bring myself to go out there (I don't drive, so I always walk to my meeting; no one in my group lives close to my neighbourhood.) I may be lucky enough to get to the meeting tonight, but I'm not getting my hopes up (two of my coworkers are down with the flu, and even though one of them is supposed to work tonight, I have a feeling she won't make it in.)

Anyway, so now I'm sitting here feeling guilty like you would not *believe* because I didn't go. o_O And it's not like I skipped the meeting because I gained; I definitely lost this week. According to my own scale (I weighed first thing this morning) I've lost 3 pounds, so it's not like I feel guilty for missing for the "wrong" reasons. I guess I'm just so used to going now that I feel wrong if I don't, you know?

Has anyone else ever felt this way? And am I "cheating" by using my own scale as a measure this week?

I've been in Newfoundland when it's that cold and I sure would stay home and NOT feel a twinge of guilt. Maybe you WILL be able to go in tonight.

Congrats on the three pounds!

I know where you're coming from. I think mine wasn't so much guilt but that I really loved the meetings and didn't want to miss any of them. Hopefully you'll be able to make tonight's meeting!

Congrats on the 3 pounds!

If you can't make it tonight because of work obligations, don't worry about it!! The good thing is that you're still keeping track of your weight through your home scale. Use that as your guide for the upcoming week and head out there next week (if you weren't able to make it there tonight)

Thanks for all the replies! <3 I did manage to make it to the meeting tonight (thanks to the fine art of layering...LOL) and I had a great week: 4 pounds gone!
