Unless you overate by 14,000 calories and didn't know it, it's more likely water retention.
Drink at least 64 ounces of water a day (if you're able to). It will go a long way in helping you towards your goal if you're properly hydrated. I was pleasantly surprised at how being properly hydrated made all the difference for me in terms of how I feel and in not retaining nearly as much water as I used to.
Consider tracking sodium in your nutrition tracker. I try my level best to keep it at or under 1000 mg per day. Yes I had to make some changes to ingredients when cooking but the result so far has been outstanding. The amount of salt in some items is positively shocking! An added bonus is that since salt is an acquired taste, I no longer can tolerate overly salty fare. Bonus for this practically killing any "salty food" cravings.

Try cutting sodium intake. Also, keep drinking water. If you don't get hydrated enough, the body tends to hold onto the water it has.
Hang in there! Remember to keep your calories down to about 1500 or less. The body will start burning the fat and show it on the scale eventually. There are articles to access on SP to get some more suggestions as well.
