I Goof again, I'm sorry for the mess up. I gained 170 NOT 172. Sorry about that. Thank you all for the input, It's helps. Good luck to you all on your weight loss journey.

Unless that meal contained 14,000 calories. You did not gain four pounds of fat overnight. What you're experiencing is nothing more than water retention. Ever notice your weight goes up during TOM ? Most women tend to "gain" weight during their menstrual cycle. Is that a fat gain ? Nope. it's nothing more than a temporary water weight gain that passes in a few days.

I can easily gain or lose as much as 3-4 pounds in a day because of a shift in my water weight.

Also, not to get TMI, but did you have a bowel movement before you weighed yourself ? If not, your waste products have weight. the food you eat has weight. the water you drink has weight and if you don't do a poop in the morning, the physical weight of all the food is still in your body.

Try it some time. Weigh yourself before and after a bowel movement. Did you lose weight ? YES ! Did you lose fat ? NOPE.

These kinds of scale fluctuations really are perfectly normal. don't worry, one meal really won't make or break your healthy lifestyle.

Don't worry, one meal will NOT make you gain 4 pounds. It might have been a little heavy on the sodium and caused some water retention, but that's about it. Check the scale again in a few days.

Rest assured that all you gained was water weight. You did not gain 4lbs of fat. It will come off. Life happens. We all over do it once in a while. You just have to get back to your normal healthy eating/exercise routine and get back on track.
