Not for everyone...but for now - for me.

This is a hotly debated topic... But as I review what has worked during my most successful spans along this journey, I find that daily weigh-ins are helpful to me. Naturally, I have to carefully manage expectations, as weight fluctuations are perfectly normal. What daily weigh-ins DO help with are: 1) a good way to help cement my intention for the day, 2) a good additional piece of data to add to the equation, as I evaluate my choices and plan my strategies.
I stop weighing myself when I go astray and then think....I'll get back on track and THEN weigh myself...knowing full well that my pants are tighter, I'm less energetic, and I don't feel good. It's the same as avoiding tracking my weight on here...I avoid it. But that doesn't help ANYTHING.
Daily weigh-ins are a tool for being honest with myself...a way to remember to REMEMBER that it's progress, not perfection that's important.
