Remember our weight is not a static number...because our body is made up of well over 50% water any slight deviation in our diet, workouts, hydration, even hormones can lead to a shift on the scale.
Remember too, that the scale is just one tool of measuring your progress. By embracing healthy habits you are doing so much more to create the healthiest you, you can be.
Stay the course and you will reach your goal.

Ok, take a deep breath.
Depending how much salt you took, it can be water retention. Have you ate well and exercised? If you ate too much, it can be a weigh gain. It can also be water retention, it's hard to tell.
But it is only 3 pounds. If you get back on track now, they will be gone fast enough!
You have to keep drinking your water. 8 cups per day, minimum. That really helps with weigh loss.
If you worry too much with the numbers of the scale, maybe you should just take measurements, for a while.
You have been doing great for losing 10 pounds, keep on going!

discouraged, I lost 10 pounds and gained 3 pounds what happened? I did eat something that was a bit salty, but I stuck to my diet, could the 3 lbs be water retention? Also, should I keep drinking my water or should I not?
