I weighed in on the first day, and vowed not to step on the scale for another month. I knew that the change in eating was working because my clothes got bigger, but I was so surprised at the 12 lb weight loss. I only weigh myself once a month now. It is easier in the first couple of months for me. I tried doing it weekly and I got depressed when I thought it should be more. Be fair on yourself when you do weigh in. Weigh in on a good day for you.

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.
I use a digital scale, a dial scale won't work too well for this.
