I weighed in last week down to 250.5, weighed in today at 255. I don't know what is going on. It
shouldn't be water weight (although I'd be very happy if it is). I haven't been eating bad and as a
matter of fact I have been eating at home instead of out. Any thoughts?

Janice:

I don't know what to say...are you using that same scale as last week? That could be a problem. Are
you weighing in at the same time of day? Is there anything else like that that has changed? weigh
in clothes?

Have you had anything with salt? I have experienced gains like that due to salt & it could be your
problem also. Go over your journal & look for salt - all prepared foods can be guilty of this. If
that is the problem, you will probably lose it next week, unless you are one of those unfortunates
(like me) who don't. What I have found out is that when you know you are going to be eating
something salty, drink an extra couple of glasses of water to flush it out - it does help. Hope this
helps. Elaine K

Might be you had something salty last night, like Chinese or other Asian food ? Are you sure
there 's nothing wrong with the scales ? (batteries?) Did you do a lot of exercise the day before
weigh-in ?

Nope. Well - apart from what the other guys said - salt, water, dodgy
scales. I hate weeks like that - inexplicable gains are the worst. I sure
hope yours vanishes as swifly as it appeared - in the meantime - chin up -
it's bound to be water or something if you've been that good :)

Too much salt, not enough water, not enough exercise, time of the month, eating within points but
too heavy on the fat/sweet stuff: perm any three of the above!

Hang in there, drink the water, it'll soon go. And see all the posts on how much you can fluctuate
over a 24 hr period!

Thank you to everyone who has posted. I am going to weigh again today before I exercise and see what
the scale says. I'm hoping it's water--I don't think I've been drinking enough, although that would
suprise me. I did weigh on my own scale and it only showed 1/2 pound gain so I'm hoping that's more
accurate (although I'd like that to be wrong too!!!!). Again, thank you everyone for the advice and
information!!!!

have you drank enough water? and look at the salt in what you ate, also have
you eaten anything you are mildly allergic to? There are some foods I am
moderately allergic to that cause temporary gain from fluid retention. Did
you increase exercise to cause muscle water holding? Good luck this week,
Lee

Not sure, Janice... maybe the scale was trippin' out on you? Or maybe it's a TOM thing? At any rate,
I'm sorry for your gain this week and hope it goes byebye as quick as it came to you.

Same scale at Curves, same time of day, same clothes!! That's why I don't understand it. My own
scale showed a gain this week also but only 1/2 a pound--that I can live with!!!

I don't know about the salt issue. I am starting to think that although I thought I was drinking
enough water I may not be.

I don't remember what I ate the night before weigh in so I don't know if it had a lot of salt--it
could have. The scale is one that doesn't use batteries--it has weights, a doctor's scale--I weighed
in just before exercise like I always do!!

I believe it is a lot of water weight. I don't think I've been drinking enough for the amount of
exercise I've been doing and the fact that I had to physically remove kids at work last week so that
took some out of me!! I also started drinking a protein powder that I thought was a meal replacement
and it turns out it is for building muscle--I don't know if that has had an effect or not. I weighed
today officially at Curves and was down 1 pound from last week but up 2 pounds from the beginning of
January however my measurements were all the same except for my hips which went down .5 inch and my
body fat which went down .5 pound so I'm drinking more water today and not fretting about the gain
at this point!!!

Thanks for the luck!!!

Any thoughts?

263/250.5/150 (maybe 130) wow janice sounds like my mother, she had a 5 lb gain the day after weigh

back off . good luck , i know how it feels but my W W Lectuer says do not let the No. on
the scale controll your life ! i been there too and have stayed on program when it hapened
