I know weighing in daily is often discouraged, but it motivates me a lot. Days when my weight is up, it pushes me to be more careful about food and exercise. Days that it's down, I'm pleased with my progress and motivated to keep the scale moving in that direction!

If I weigh 184 lbs I think to myself that I weigh 182 lbs. I tell myself over and over (in my head) that I weigh 182 lbs until I actually do weigh 182 lbs. Then I tell myself I weigh 180 lbs. etc. You get the idea. Sounds strange, but it works for me.9
I have found that weighing in weekly on Wednesday works good for me. In the past I always weighed in on Fridays and that lead to weekend binges. Monday weigh ins didn't work so well because of occasional straying on weekends. Wednesdays work well, it all averages out anyway but I recomend trying the Wednesday weigh in.
