LDHAWKE - it DOESN'T mean she is doing anything wrong at all!~
There are many reasons why this happens and it does happen to a lot of people - women in particular. I assumed she started working out because a healthy lifestyle journey goes hand in hand with exercise as well as nutrition.
As I said, there are many reasons for weight gain - I gave a very common reason in my initial post. Here are some others:
* Increased sodium in the diet can retain fluid, therefore weight (check nutrition labels)
* Hormones - women tend to fluctuate throughout the month, including some post menopausal women.
* What you had eaten the previous day or two hasn't properly passed through the system.
* Whether you went to the loo prior to weighing or not (it can easy make that much difference)
* The time of day you weighed. A lot of us can fluctuate by a few pounds within the same day - gaining as the days wears on.
* Clothes worn when weighing (if you wear clothes.)
* Medications - some can cause rapid weight gain.
Sometimes it might be one singular reason and sometimes it can be a combination of more than one.
Gaining 2lb in a week is pretty hard to achieve by over-eating. That means you would have to consume 7,000 calories IN EXCESS of your needs.
IF the weight gain continues, then perhaps seeing your Dr to check the reason would be advisable.
