How is this possible? What would have caused this? I have been steadily losing, and yes my weight fluctuates a pound or so here and there. But this morning I was 3 pounds heavier than yesterday mornings weigh in! I went out to eat last night, but I stuck to the salad bar only. I did eat a little tuna salad on the side, but other than that, I used light dressing, etc. I felt I was eating pretty healthy, but I had no way of actually counting my calories though. So maybe not? But I still don't think I ate 3 pounds of food much less 3 pounds of fat! I'm at a loss and now I feel like the last week and a half's hard work is down the drain! Ugh!
just drink plenty of water and in a day or two it should be back down to normal.
It's most likely water weight. It's common for a woman to gain up to 5 or more pounds of water weight overnight, especially if you are pre-menstrual or taking in too much sodium. Have some green tea, drink some water (sounds weird but water is actually a diuretic), and relax. It will come off again. Promise! :)
Similer thing, i mean odd i ate yesterday cus my mother made a huge feast so i decited i would eat a lager portion then usual *she was getting upset i wasent eating more of her yummy food lol*, and this morning i was 3 pounds heavier also 0_o ofcourse i was like how can one day trow me off so much and it wasent even that bad,
i guess its true 1 day off the diet does trow you off cus it did for me =/
I feel the same way like i messed up but i didin't even eat that much, plus it was all i had cus i didin't get hungry anymore,
So same! last weeks work down the drain as well..... *kicks self*
But Dont feel bad as u can see it happense. Just try and get back on track Like today i plan to work out just a bit more ^^, try the same? Let me know
*huggles* its ok no biggie hun =p
Water retention huh, maybe ..
My daughter is a nurse and she told me that although I weigh myself each morning, not to be upset at a gain. Basically it takes two weeks to show definitive results. Your body adjusts to what you eat and if you ate anything salty, you will retain fluids throughout your body for awhile.
She said to measure my real weight loss by what I weigh at the end of each week, and to watch the salt. Maybe you could use sea salt like I do. I don't retain too much water that way, and I walk alot during the day to work it off.
Don't get discouraged,
