What also helps is knowing that your body can burn fat even when retaining water (read that on this board and confirmed it with my coach!).
I'm generally a daily weigher, too, though I have periods of trying not to be. I'm also a serial dieter. On all programs I've tried (and there have been many), a couple of days before TOM I get a big drop on the scale. First day of TOM, scale shoots back up 1-2 pounds (so predictable, I know when to be prepared). After three days, big drop again, lower than the initial whoosh.
