I only weigh once a week and even so I have unaccountable ups and downs. Like this week I lost 3 pounds emoticon but I won't be at all surprised (just sad and mad emoticon emoticon ) if I get on the scale next week and find it's all come back. That happens to me a lot. emoticon

your weight will fluctuate each day... somedays it will be 1 pound, some times it is more. It is mostly water weight. That is why they say it is best to weigh yourself in the morning and to only weigh yourself once a week.

Mars must be in retrograde for me!! I usually hover around 106/107 and lately have been hovering at 108 and I DON"T like it one bit!

Granted I had 2 days of unintentional high salt, TOM is quickly approaching and my exercise for Nov was really off.

Also make sure you are consuming enough for what you are burning.

Make sure you are getting enough sleep. That can have an effect on your weight as odd as that sounds. emoticon

It is a great frustration, and I used to get so upset about these "impossible" gains.

Very good advice, has been given here. It is quite a problem. You will get through this and succeed in reaching your goals. emoticon

I know the frustration, and have had it with as many as 5 POUNDS! Yes! I got on the scale and was 5#'s heavier than 3 days before. They all came off though once I got back to watching my intake, upping my water and stressing a bit less about it. Also made sure I got some good sleep and reduced my alcohol intake emoticon

And don't forget! If you are doing good strength training that can do it too - IN THE BEST WAY! emoticon

You have gotten great advice here!!! There is no way that pound is fat--try to weigh less often! Keep doing what you're doing!

Maybe you're retaining water from the sodium in your food. I try to keep it below the SP tracker's suggested amount. Don't give up!

Don't panic!

Weight can fluctuate from a pound to as much as three daily. It's influenced by how much sodium we consume, our hormonal levels, weightlifting activity, Mars in retrograde... (that last one is a joke).

Keep doing all of the right things, faithfully and consistently and you will be fine! The goal is a permanent lifestyle change to healthy eating and exercise that will help you maintain a RANGE of acceptable weight.

Save your tears for the plateaus... Now those always drove me crazy!

may just be a good thing as you also add muscle when following a workout routine. Don't get too caught up in the pounds but how your body is changing and how your clothes are fitting ...that way you'll stay on track and not loose focus.

LOL - pounds are a pain! Don't give up! There are so many factors that make you gain instead of lose. Think of all the times you lost and also wondered how. Don't let it get you down!

It happens to me all the time and that's why I only weigh myself every few days at the most. You didn't gain fat. Keep sticking with it and you will see results.

So apparently I gained one pain in a day , but I do not know how. I counted calories and worked out yesterday and ended the day at -650 calories. I am so confused and I drank 136 oz. of water. I am on the verge of tears.
