Our weight is not a static number. It's a vital sign, like your blood pressure or body temperature! It will fluctuate as much as 5-10 lbs in a single 24 hour period. Most of those changes are related to fluids; you're not really gaining or losing fat in a single day, rather you're holding on to or releasing fluids. This number can be affected by how much sleep you get, hormone levels (ever notice you tend to gain weight during your period?), your sodium intake (that's my big one), and more. That's why Sparkpeople recommends just weekly weigh ins.
one technique a loto f people use to combat this is a weekly average. Weigh daily, but record an official average of your 7 day period on one day.
It's also important to weigh at the same time, under the same circumstances.
This is all perfectly normal, and how your body works. :)
