Scale whore/scale prude - my life as both

So lately I have been a scale prude - basically avoiding the scale because I know I won't like what it says.  Yet when I am doing well, I have to stop myself from becoming a scale whore, knowing for me weighing myself every day can sometimes be discouraging.  I haven't been on the scale in weeks, and I know it will be bad.  I was all motivated earlier this month, and was getting back on track.  I wish I could tell you what derailed me, but I truly don't know.  I am an emotional eater, and work has been stressful, so I have definitely been hitting the junk hard at work.  My therapist told me to write down my feelings before reaching for food when I'm stressed. I thought, that is a great idea!  And then promptly ignored that advice at the first opportunity.  I know this journey has its ups and downs, but I wish I could sustain the up periods for a bit longer than a week!
