Thank you for the reply Nancy. I have been maintaining for 2.5 years now and I started weighing everyday about 6 months ago just to work out how my body works with what I eat, etc. I always weigh first thing in the morning as soon as I have relieved myself...which is why I am asking how it could jump like that and not move since. I am guessing inflammation, etc, but I was hoping someone might have gone through this before.

It is difficult to say because there are so many factors as to what affects the number on the scale..the weight of the food and liquid you just ate, the last time you used the restroom, water retention, hormonal changes, clothing and more. It's normal for your weight to fluctuate day-to-day and throughout the day--by as much as 7 pounds in a day. That's why it's best to weigh yourself less often (like once a week) and know that this is just an obstacle in your healthy living journey--it will not derail you unless you allow it to.
Okay, I finally 'got it' 3 years ago. Since then, I have become extremely fit and work very hard 5 days a week. For the first time in that 3 years, I have hurt myself. Last Thursday my back went and I have been out of commission for 5 days. I am dealing with it okay because it's going to be fine in a few days. The thing that I have a question about is... I weighed 152 on Thursday morning, pre back injury, and Saturday morning I weighed 162. Now...I KNOW I didn't gain 10 pounds, but what is it that has caused this? Can any of you wise guru's answer this? And it's not going down at all either. Just wondering why the big jump.
