I've found that weighing myself every morning is one of the best ways to keep from putting on weight and even to keep myself on track if I'm trying to lose a bit of weight (that I put on by stopping regular weigh-ins)
It's NOT a chance to beat myself up for yesterday (especially at certain times of the month!). It is a chance to keep myself from starting to deny the consequences of what I'm eating and/or how little I'm moving.

I really never believed when I read and heard you have to eat "enough" calories, so I tried over and over to eat only 1000 per day. I have officially proven after daily weigh-ins for 2 months, the days I eat "enough" I actually lose more weight. You could have hit me in the head, I was so shocked! Who knew ... good fat really is good for me? Wow!
Having practiced scale avoidance most of my life, this was a hard one for me to adopt. But, like others have said the weekly weigh in seems to get sabotaged or manipulated for a host a reasons. I have started DAILY weigh ins. This really keeps me focused on a daily basis and I avoid the ups and downs that tend to come after weekends or travel days. I have realized that avoiding the scale doesn't change the end result-I weight what I weigh. It is better to come to terms with that!193
