Getting on the scale daily can trigger you to move off course when trying to lose weight. Only weigh yourself once a week. I wanted validation daily when i first began my weight loss journey to know psychologically that what i was doing was working. however, over time i realized that my weight fluctuated daily and it started to sabotage my efforts. Weigh yourself weekly and look at how your clothes are fitting.

I find weighing in once each week gives me a good look at my progress (good or bad) and helps me stay on track. If I really am putting in the needed work, I will see that reflected on the scale most weeks.
Weighing in daily can be discouraging, as you won't see it go down each day, and food/water may show an initial gain on the scale. I weigh in each Thursday in the morning, after I've gone to the bathroom and before I've had any food or drinks.
