What is the weigh-in for? Just your personal information?

I'd be extra diligent until my next weigh-in, so I could see a bigger drop than usual, since I have extra time between weigh-ins!

Otherwise, I'd weigh in at the same time of day as my usual weigh-in, so if that's usually in the morning, then I'd wait until morning.

C - absolutely

A was only a half-week

B would be comparing apples with oranges. Weight fluctuates within a ~5 lb range throughout the day.

Well then if you can't find a replacement meeting over the weekend around the same time of day, then I'd wait until next week if I were you. Two different scales = two different weights. Different WW scales are okay though because they calibrate them quite often due to heavy usage.

Definitely tomorrow morning. If you weigh yourself at home tonight you'll think you gained. I weigh as much as 5-7 lbs more in the evening after dinner than I do in the morning before breakfast. And that's every day (I'm compulsive and weigh myself every morning, naked, before I get in the shower). Occasionally I want to see how much I weigh after I eat, so I weigh myself after each meal on those days. But for "the record" always weigh in at the same time of day.

Though there is nothing wrong with weighing in, in the morning which was my first thought. I would wait until the next meeting unless you know how much of a difference there is between your scales and the ones at the meeting. There could be a huge difference. I know our drs scales are 10 pounds more than the one I use.
So you may want to wait.
