Here's a tip for the person who does everything right and shows a gain on the scale. Maybe the scale is off, not you! I've had the same experience where I know my clothes fit looser and that I've made good eating choices but the scale goes way up. I wound up buying a new scale and sure enough, the old one was off! I'm not saying you have to do that, but just recognize that the scale is not God and you know in your heart if you've been faithful to your program. Also, some of the digital scales are weird in that they seem to "lock in" on your previous weight and don't show new losses. Sometimes if it seems my scale is stuck, I get on the scale holding a few extra pounds of weight, like a big bottle of bleach in one hand. The scale shows a higher weight, and then when I get off and back on, the weight goes down to a more accurate reading. Anyway, try not to take what the scale tells you too personally and trust yourself more.
