I have to go to the Dr. and I know how stupid I'll sound when I say that I don't want to get weighed.
In fact, I don't want to have that discussion at all because just the thought of numbers on a scale throws me down a twisted path... I've been bH managing to avoid obsessively counting calories and I really don't want to get drawn in again.
And for all those who say that I don't have to get drawn in to it, it's a choice that I make, I say that you are not me, and if avoidance of the topic has been keeping me physically healthy, I don't want to rock the boat.

Totally get you on that one. Can you turn around and not look at the scale when you need to get weighed? Or maybe you can tell them your weight (make it up if you need to) and say you prefer not to get on the scale this time.

I don't let them weigh me at the doctor. I usually say "not for me" and they sometimes ask my weight and I round off the number to what I think it is...what reality I think it is. No one can FORCE you to get weighed....not even your doc. (Maybe insurance company but that's just weird.)
