Water weight - I maintain about 5 lbs of water. If I drink tea, it acts as a natural diuretic and I can drop that weight within 2 days. But, as soon as I start drinking liquids, the weight comes right back. I can't drink tea at night as it makes me go all night long...
Just like blood pressure or any physical system, weight fluctuates constantly.
Which is why I only weigh-in once a week for data, although once in a while I hop on unofficially during the week for a sneak preview.
Some daily weighers use apps that average those daily weigh-ins into a single weekly number and that is the only way I can personally see that daily weigh-ins can make any sense.

I can easy loose that amount of weight just by going to the loo - LOL!
Your weight fluctuates constantly due to various factors: Your hormones The weight of food still in your stomach The amount of sodium consumed Whether you went to the toilet prior to the last weigh but not the first one.
There are other factors, too, but those are the main ones.

Yes I would go with the water weight yet weigh yourself again during the week to see if those 3 pounds stay off or not.

Your weight fluctuates. It can change within 5 pounds within the same day based on the weight of food eaten, hydration levels, etc. I would actually encourage to weigh once a week. It will give you a truer sense of fat loss or gain based on just that versus daily natural fluctuations.

How can you lose 3 pounds in 3 days ? Is it a lot of water weight ? I weigh myself same time in the morning also.
