And you can easily vary 5-10lbs just in 'water weight.' Time of the day, time of the week, etc. Whethery our muscles have full glycogen stores (more energy, but more water), electrolyte balance (see also: sodium). One weighing on the scale won't say much.

If I put in 10 miles per day, I would eat at least 2500 calories to sustain the energy output. Your body may be trying to hold onto any weight it can due the the output vs. input of calories.
Since Jan 1 i have put myself on a strict 1800-2200 cal diet and have done daily cardio anywhere from a 2.5mi walk with the dogs to multiple runs and walks totaling 10 miles in a day. I stepped on the scale the other day and gained 4 lbs. Anyone know of an explanation for this?
