When I weigh myself I always try to do it first thing in the morning - just as several other people mentioned I can gain 5 pounds during the day because I drink so much water...

Remember that it takes 3500 calories ON TOP OF YOUR BMR to make you gain a single pound! To gain 3, you would have had to overeat by 10,500 pounds. That didn't happen. My weight can vary by 5# in a single day based on hydration, etc.

Stay away from the scales for a while and focus on non-scale victories. How are you feeling? Do you feel healthier? Shake up your diet a little. Eat on the lower end of your scales on one day and higher on the next. Know, too, that muscle weighs more than fat- the good news is that it takes up less space and burns more calories!

Keep pressing on--you will notice cycles that you will pass through day by day..and eventually you come to know them and what to expect--generally--there is always potential for surprise. I am often up a little on the day after an intense workout, but back down a few days later--that's my pattern--you will find yours. Sorry you are frustrated--that can be really hard. Believe in yourself, and you will reach your goals!
