I've noticed the same thing for me and I think its because before I was dieting I was not drinking 8 glasses of water or even near that much and I ate a lot of salty foods and sugar. I'm sure my body held on to whatever water it could get at that time. Now that I'm drinking tons of water and not eating like I was, I'm sure its realized it doesn't need to hold on to every singe drop.

While I don't drop 10lbs at once, I do habitually lose nothing - nothing - nothing - nothing - BIG LOSS. So yes, your body can actually kind of store up your weight loss efforts and drop them in one day.

It's kind of like ... you're losing fat constantly, which is dropping your weight, but for some reason you're retaining maybe water. You retain and retain and retain more water each day - hiding the entire fat loss by "weighing something" and masking it. Then one day your body says "we don't need all that excess water" and dumps it - and your real fat loss that was there all along shows up.

Not really, no. :)

10 lbs at your weight is within the normal fluctuation range for fluids in your body. I've seen my own bbody weight fluctuate as much as 9 pounds over the course of a single 24 hour period!

That does NOT mean you've lost 10 lbs of fat. Such a sudden drop (and gain) is indicative of fluid retention and loss... not fat creation and loss.

I wouldn't worry, it's probably an initial water loss. It's pretty common to lose a few pounds pretty quickly in the beginning of a new exercise/ diet program. Your weight loss should start to slow now, if it doesn't it could be an indicator that something is wrong. See how you weigh-in next week and let us know.

That also doesnt sound safe??? I eat healthy proportioned meals and exercise everyday...Is my body making up for the two months without weight loss?

I'll start from the beginning. I have been dieting for almost two months with no results (i blame a week in between where i cheated on vacation) I have been weighing in around 209-210 since then.. I kinda stayed away from the scale for a week. I weighed in yesterday at 200 when i was 210 just a week ago. Ive stepped on the scale a few different times and get 200 everytime. I just bought this scale so I know it shouldnt be broken...IS IT POSSIBLE that i really lost 10 pounds in a week??? skeptic lol
