It’s been my observation that when I fail a weight loss goal and pay the piper (or the bees), that the next morning my weight is often low enough to have not derailed.
This is an artifact of how different body systems work - and how they interact with sleep. I almost always weigh at about the same time in the morning (about 0500) wearing only my wedding ring.
Inevitably, if I weigh at some other time of day (even with the same circumstances), I weigh more.
So, the suggestion is that at least for some goals (like those tied to auto-measuring scales) that one be allowed the option of having the derail timeout be as late as 0900 (or 1000) the next morning.
The only ways to lose weight in a matter of a few hours during the day are extremely unhealthy. However, if I wait until morning, things often resolve themselves with no effort on my part.
