WHAT THE......
What am I doing wrong?????? Up 3 pounds. THREE pounds. Yes on Saturday I did have cheesecake brownie and carrot cake (a few bites of each) BUT NOT 3 lbs worth. My calories were slightly high, BUT not ridiculously high.
I want to jump up and down and scream..
and to top it off my head hurt a bit yesterday and I woke up with it feeling like someone was taking a baseball bat to it and my neck is really sore. Dr. says that is to be expected and to take ibuprofen and take it easy for a few days. He said I can do cardio but he does NOT recomend weight lifting.
At the moment I am not sure I can do cardio with how much my head is hurting but I am PISSED that I am up 3lbs.
UGHHHH *jumping up and down throwing a temper tantrum*
I guess that is not helping my headache much. I will drink more water, have a healthy salad with 1/2 dressing and do soup for dinner so I will have a very low calorie day. Maybe that will help some.

233.0 lb Lost so far: 10.0 lb.    Still to go: 58.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Google "why the scale lies". It will give you insight in to water weight gain and fluctuations. If you weigh daily, you need to expect fluctuations.

I agree, a few bites of cheesecake and a brownie will not put on 3 pounds but the additional carbs could make you retain water. These flucuations are why I don't weight myself everyday.

I've had that happens to me every once in a while, then drops off in a few days, or even the next day. It is frustrating, but if you can let it go, it the added weight won't stick around. I've been eating some fairly high-sodium meals lately; gained 3+ pounds a few days ago, but it's gone now. Don't let those 3 pounds get you to think what's the point or they will stick around! I know you won't; you're doing pretty well. Hang in there.

I talked to my sister and she said the inflamation in my neck and back from the car accident can also cause a weight gain because it is holding water as well. What are your thoughts on water pills like diurex

I think thats a bit drastic, wait for the swelling to go on its own. Just remmeber water weight is not fat.
