your weight will fluctuate daily, sometimes even 5 lbs! don't let it freak you out. instead of weighing yourself daily, start a weekly routine. pick a weigh in day...after you wake up, use the restroom, and before you eat or drink anything, weigh yourself and take measurements.
this is a habit i've adopted, and its what many people do. it gives you a more accurate idea of your weight loss.

First of all... don't weigh yourself every day, and especially don't weigh yourself multiple times a day!!! Yikes! You'll drive yourself crazy!
Just think about the food you eat and the liquids you drink. If you were to put a full day's food and drinks on a scale, they'd weigh far more than 4 pounds. Obviously weighing yourself before you eat and weighing yourself after you eat will show a difference... an empty stomach weighs less than a full one!
Also, weight naturally fluctuates due to hydration, your cycle (if you're female), your hormone levels, and other factors.
But, seriously, I can't say this enough -- don't weigh yourself so often!
