Justin and I went to visit his parents for three days, and in that time I managed to gain three pounds. How is that even possible?! I was lax with what I ate, but not THAT lax. I was fully prepared to not lose anything, or even gain half a pound, maybe. Those were consequences I was prepared for. But three? Those three pound took me THREE WEEKS to lose. How could they come back in three days? I thought it was just water weight, because my sodium intake over those three days was waaay more than usual. But, I've been home a couple days now, and drinking water like a mad person, and my weight hasn't changed at all.

    This is the same torture I go through every couple of days! My weight goes up and down in a range of 5 pounds CONSTANTLY. I seriously cannot get off of this 5-pound ferris wheel. Every couple of days, I'll go down 2 and be all excited, and by the next day or the next, I'm up 3. Down 1, up 1. Down 1.5, up 2. I want to scream. emoticon

    No Ugh!! I would doubt you gained 3 pounds of weight. Give until Thursday or Friday. My program, which I strongly wouldn't recommend to anyone, includes eating rather freely on Saturday evening and all day Sunday. I still lose nearly 2 pounds a week. Now, if I weigh myself on Monday or Tuesday after my weekends it looks ridiculous. Sometimes it will appear I've gained 4 or 5 pounds. And by Friday, I show the 1.5 to 2 pound total new loss by maintaining a lower calorie count during the week and keeping up my exercise all week. The body will react to changes, especially by holding fluids. Last week my Monday weight was 6 pounds higher than my Friday before weight! By the next Saturday I was 2 pounds lower than the original Friday weight. That's an 8 pound scale swing, not an eight pound weight gain (or loss) Good luck. I'll bet five bucks you've still lost 3 pounds.
