In the last week I have been 182 pounds, 178 pounds, and everything in between!
Our bodies may hold on to water, have hormonal shifts, be digesting food, all sorts of things that may make the number on the scale increase, but has nothing to do with actually gaining weight. I guarantee that if you looked at everyone's weight tracker, not a single person would have a straight line going in a downward direction. But we still might see 2 lbs up, 3 lbs down within a week.
Stick with it, and don't only rely on the scale! Take measurements, track how you feel, how your clothes fit. The scale can be helpful, but also kind of a jerk!

Have you been exercising as well?
It isn't anything to worry about! My weight fluctuates anywhere from 1-5 pounds daily based on what I ate/water retention, but as long as the general trend remains the same, then I don't worry about it (in maintenance). So for you, as long as your general overall trend is downward like you want, then it isn't anything to worry about!

Weight isn't a static #. It goes up and down like heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, etc. As long as you are making healthy choices, tracking your food and working out, just trust the process. The weight will come off eventually but it probably won't be consistent. You will have ups and downs even if you are "perfect". This is normal and nothing to worry about.
