I can gain that much after a high sodium day. It goes away quickly once I start eating better.

your weight will fluctuate daily, sometimes even 5 lbs! don't let it freak you out. instead of weighing yourself daily, start a weekly routine. pick a weigh in day...after you wake up, use the restroom, and before you eat or drink anything, weigh yourself and take measurements.

this is a habit i've adopted, and its what many people do. it gives you a more accurate idea of your weight loss.

goal, 140 (driver's license weight) MET: 6/2/09
goal, 135 MET: 7/22/09
goal, 130 MET 8/11/09!

First of all... don't weigh yourself every day, and especially don't weigh yourself multiple times a day!!! Yikes! You'll drive yourself crazy!


Just think about the food you eat and the liquids you drink. If you were to put a full day's food and drinks on a scale, they'd weigh far more than 4 pounds. Obviously weighing yourself before you eat and weighing yourself after you eat will show a difference... an empty stomach weighs less than a full one!

Also, weight naturally fluctuates due to hydration, your cycle (if you're female), your hormone levels, and other factors.

But, seriously, I can't say this enough -- don't weigh yourself so often!

Water weighs a lot. The 64 ounces we are recommended to drink daily weigh a bit over 4 pounds and a lot of times we retain more water than other (hormonal changes during TOM, sodium intake, etc).

no way! maybe you are retaining water because of too much salt. the only way to gain 4 pounds is to eat 14000 calories!

Im just wondering if anyone out there knows if it is physically possible to gain 4 pounds in one day when you stayed within your caloric intake levels??? what the heck. I am very frustrated!
