It's water. Your body started holding on to it when it sensed you were in trouble. Be sure to get your 8 glasses in today. That will signal to your body that everything's okay and you'll see those pounds vanish.

Our weight is not a static number. There's more going on than the amount of food we eat. I agree that all the soup could be causing some water retention from the sodium.

Your weight will shift quite a bit over the course of the day. I wouldn't worry about weighing at all until you're back on your program.

Probably the sodium in the soup led to excess water weight gain. Drink plenty of water, it will come off. Feel better!

How can this be? I came down with flue like symptoms. Diahreah and vomiting. One bowl of Mrs. Weiss chicken soup one day. Second day - 3 bowls of soup and also the third day. And checked and weighed the same. Now 2 days later, I have gained a pound? And I am still not back to 100 percent normal and definitely not overeating.
