Have you ever gained a pound or two whilst still on plan extra condiments, no extra anything, 100% doing what you are supposed to be doing? Drinking tons of water still, etc.??.

This morning, I stepped on the scale (I weighed myself Monday morning), and it showed a 2 pound gain! What?? Luckily, I hadn't changed my ticker. This had never happened to me on MF, unless it did and I just never noticed or can't remember..

Anyone else?..

Yes, it happens. Are you constipated? You could be retaining extra water, that time of the month, or 100 other reasons. It will probably be back to normal tomorrow or the next weigh-in. Don't worry and keep up the good work!..

Yes, that happened to me when my weigh-in day fell the morning after eating out. Even though the ingredients of my restaurant meal were OP grilled fish, green beans everything tasted salty and I think my gain was directly related to extra sodium. Next weigh-in I was down 4, which is the most I have lost in one week since week 1. I am trying hard to avoid extra sodium...

Comment #2

Yep, but it's not fat. It's something else and could have many factors:.

Extra sodium (tuna has a lot).


Big workout that caused retained fluids.

If you're 100% OP, there's now WAY you can really have weight gain, as in FAT gain. Just not possible...

Well I have been stuck at the same weight for 4 weeks now and have been totally on program. Getting a little frustrated but hanging in there. I just don't know...

Comment #4

I'm in the same 2 lb. boat. I was down 2 lbs. two days ago and now I'm up. Kind of annoying. Hang in there!..

Comment #5

Thanks you guys! Since this has never happened to me, I was a little irked. I'm going to have to chalk it up to something like sodium, and Abby, now that you mention it, I am a little constipated...

Comment #6

Yep it's quite normal. Depending on the factors listed above and more, your weight can actually fluctuate up to 4 pounds. It can be extra sodium, not enough water the day before, flying, heavy workout, constipation, etc.

You're doing great - keep it up!..

I was up three or four last week, mid-week, but by wi day, I showed a loss of 1.5 I was completely op. I think my body is just being stubborn sometimes!..

Comment #8

Well, I've decided not to weigh myself until the weekend. I'm usually a daily weigher (I know, I know, bad girl, LOL). I had been weighing every 2 days, but I think I'll start with maybe every 4 days or so. I cannot discipline myself to weighing only once a week. Let's hope my weight this weekend reflects those 2 pounds gone! Thanks everyone...

Comment #9

I'm bumping Tarahh's great thread for you. It's called "Why am I not losing (long)". It'll be on the first page in a sec. Hope it helps!..
