I weigh daily, so I see 3-4 lb drops, and gains some days. This is usually due to sodium being too high, or swelling in joints from doing too much work/exercise.
To gain 7 lbs of actual weight, you would need to eat an extra 24,500 calories over your energy expenditure for the day. This isn't possible. I know. I've tried it..lol.
If you have swelling, take an Ibuprofen. If it is sodium, drink a little extra water, and in a few days, you will drop back down. The holidays are approaching, and this happens. We eat foods that are not part of our regular foods ( treats ), and most often they are delicious, but not as healthy. Don't panic. Just eat healthy as much as possible, and eat whatever your relatives chase you down and ask you to try. That is life, and no one wants to tell Grandma we can't eat her brownies. It all balances out in the end.
