I thought I could. I'm not sure I shouldn't. But I can't walk into my doctor's office with the express intent to decieve him. I already think I'm going to change practices, maybe to a fill center, or maybe I'll find a different doctor's office. But lying to him just goes against my good girl, rule-follower nature. I'm so much more of a 'in your face this is how it is and you can now take it or leave it' kind of girl.
I'm brilliant at diversion, but I rarely actually lie. And this was too much of a lie for me. I was going to eat salty carbs today so my weight would go up a few pounds, but I'm not even going to do that. I'm in a really good eating and exercising place right now and to go off the ranch too far could too easily spell disaster.
I'm not in desperate need of a fill right now. I certainly don't have good restriction as evidenced by my often rumbling stomach, but if I find out he truly can't see past the numbers on the scale then it's better to find that out now while I'm in a really good head-space then later when I'm in a bad one.
I may be hitting up some of my more local bandsters for opinions of their practices or maybe he'll surprise me.
Anyway - thanks so much for your thoughts and advice, it was much appreciated.
(I will be wearing the heaviest outfit I can find though, and I guess it's possible that there might be some loose change or old keys in my pockets.)
