I do only because I drink alot of water. I think you should weigh in before you work out or first thing in the morning to be consistent.

This is totally normal, not preventable, and a regular part of exercise.

Just know that you are burning fat, and your body is improving. The scale is just about the worst measure of our progress that we have. All it shows is gravity's grip on us that day. It doesn't show our body fat percentage, nor our energy, the health of our body, or anything else.

Don't worry too much about it at this point. :)

When you start a new workout, your muscles soak up water like a sponge. You will stop retaining water and it will even out soon.

Yes of course as I have just drank 32 oz of water or so while working out.....that evens itself out by the end of the day.....the weight is from water not muscle.

I have started weight training, and I have read and have been told that women build muscle slowly, a pound of muscle doesn't build overnight or even in a week or two.

so I know It's not muscle, but a day or two after hard workouts, especially with weights, I see 1-3 lbs up on the scale, even though I still drink my 10 glasses of water and eat within my range.

Anyone else notice this? I guess that's a reason not to weigh daily....
