I don't know how new you are, but if it makes you feel any better, when I first joined I actually gained three pounds too. And they were from eating too much, but I was relearning some healthy habits. I hadn't been eating all three meals before, was drinking too much soda, and hadn't been paying attention to making sure I got fruits and vegetables and so I started eating more and I gained weight..
..that isn't where it all ended though.. I am happy to say that I started in January 2013 (this time.. I've been a Spark dropout before taking it seriously this year) and I've dropped 21.2 pounds from that point now. so I started at 247, climbed to 250 (my heaviest), and then dropped to 228.8 .. It just takes time.. and like the others said it could be water weight too.. but everyone deals with short setbacks, be patient with yourself and keep at it! Keep pushing! You'll get there! No one can perfectly perform all the time.. You are getting some phenomenal results! Just pick yourself back up.. There's a proverb that says that the virtue is not in never having fallen, it is in picking yourself back up after you've stumbled.
