Is it possible to weigh four more pounds that the day before. The scales said yesterday 168 and today 172. Does this happen often or just a fluke.. emoticon

    I hate when my scale does that but water gain can do that when I ate to much sodium and or TOM can do similar things I'm sure you will be back down again

    Try not to weigh yourself every day to save yourself from the drama. 4 lbs. is just a fluke and will disappear as sneakily as it appeared.

    I. HATE. THIS. Or rather, I hate when that happens! What a disappointment. But like they say, it's water, it's natural flucuations, whatever. Doesn't matter WHAT it is, it's there and you just need to keep doing what you're doing to get it gone again.
Don't let that stupid scale bum you out!

    My weight fluctuation drives me crazy because i'm never sure of my actual weight, I need to get it down but the scale is very deceiving.

    That's happened to me twice. Four pounds of actual body mass equates to 14,000 calories, so unless you ate that much overnight, it's not possible for it to be any kind of weight that matters. It may come off again in a day, or it may stick around for a week or more before the numbers start to go down again, but whatever it does remember it's not real and try not to stress to much.

    I think you are just having some water retention. When I eat something salty I tend to keep water weight also when my monthly girls days. You'll be ok. Don't worry too much. As stress is very bad for the weight loss journey.

    Our bodies can fluctuate in weight by a few pounds every day. It all depends on water retention, etc. So don't sweat it!
