I've got it, too. The WW affliction that is.

In a nod to aesthetics, I partially de-stickered my DVUL wheels. The yellow from the previous generation clashed with my Trek's red, white and blue USPS paint scheme. Before disposing of the stickers, I weighed them and was delighted to save a "free" 5 grams (never mind the price of the wheels!). You want more? I giddily updated the bike's weight on my homemade WW spreadsheet.

Long live WW.

Sorry....can't help you.
w.w. is an incurable disease, as far as I'm aware.
Though I know a few weenies that have been in remission for a while, this form of OCD will eventually reappear.
Though there is no known cure, the worst of the symptoms are treatable.
Take carbon 3 times a day (from shops) and place it on your bike. You'll notice a temporary easing of symptoms.
Warning: Though carbon therapy will temporarily ease symptoms, tollerance will develop, and this will result in greater levels of carbon dependance over time.
-DOC.
