Take a deep breathe. you did NOT gain 3 pounds of fat. What you're experiencing is nothing more than a temporary water weight gain.
Ever notice your weight goes up during TOM ? Most women tend to gain weight during their menstrual cycle. Is that a fat gain ? Nope. that too is nothing more than a temporary water weight gain that passes in a few days. I can easily gain 3-4 pounds in a day !
Unless you ate 10,500 EXTRA calories in the last three days, you didn't gain fat. You're just retaining water and that's perfectly normal. Don't worry, your body will release the excess water in a few days. How long ? Depends. How long does it take your body to lose the weight you gain during TOM ?
In short... you're normal.
