This may not work for all metabolisms-- but I weigh myself every morning using a digital scale. That way I can see my daily progress, even if it's just .2 pounds less. It keeps me from splurging because I'll see the results the very next day versus the end of the week.

If you're tracking your weight with a small "stand on it and look down at the numbered dial"-style scale, put that scale in the exact same spot on the floor each time you weigh yourself, because the scale's reading can CHANGE based on how flat, even, textured or tilted the ground underneath it is.
