I used to obsess about the scale.
I would check my weight almost every day. It would go up two pounds then back down again.
I was frustrated!
The problem with this approach is that obsessing over daily weigh-ins is a waste of time and energy.
There are many factors that can affect your daily weight fluctuations such as, sodium, the amount of carbs I had eaten, how much muscle I had gained (or lost!), etc.
Instead I only weigh myself twice a month: at the beginning and in the middle.
Provided one is eating and exercising well you will be encouraged by the changes in weight and the body composition. Since you are spreading the weigh-ins apart you will be encouraged instead of frustrated by what you see!
Once I stopped obsessively weighing myself I was able to just focus on making my workouts and getting my food intake on point.
By only weighing myself twice a month I was very pleased with the lasting changes to my body!
