The answers here are good ones. Two lbs. of weight gain won't happen overnight unless it is water. Sodium intake or dehydration (ironically) are other reasons you could be holding onto water.
There is something else that you should be aware of as you continue forward. Two things will eventually slow your weight loss if you are trying to lose a lot of weight.
1) When you exercise regularly your body gets more efficient over time, so you either will have to work harder or longer to burn the same calories.
2) When you weigh less you burn fewer calories doing the same activity. Pick up a couple of 10lb sacks of flour next time you are in the grocery. You used to carry that much weight with you all of the time, every time you went up a flight of stairs, or got up out of a chair, or did anything.
You have lost a lot of weight pretty fast. When you get a little further don't panic when the weight comes off more slowly. A good question to ask yourself is, "Is this way of eating and exercising sustainable?" If you don't see yourself maintaining a similar diet and exercise pattern long after you reach your goal, you may want to re-think how you are going about it. I know that I would find it difficult to eat such a limited diet for the long term. But that's just me.
Some of these new habits are going to have to continue if you want to keep the weight off. If it works for you, great!
Best of luck on your journey to your best you!
