Are you close to your period or have you been eating a lot of salty foods. It could just be water retention…

@kdane: Dont go too crazy. If you just got off your period it totally could be that.

One word: Spanx!! Especially since you haven’t gained any weight. I think Corilee is right and you are just retaining water. I wish you luck!

@kdane: I agree with Corilee, salt might be a part of it. But I also notice that I feel a little,uhm, thicker when I add miles. My muscles tend to retain more water after greater exertion and I’ve been told that it’s because your muscles hold more water to heal. Usually drinking more water and doing some extra stretching helps me. Good luck!

Spanx the miracle worker.  Or get a corset back, then you will always fit in the dress.

Potassium helps to flush sodium out of your body.  Eat more healthy fruits and veggies.  Also it sounds counterintuitive but drink lots of water.  I’m sure everything will be okay.

I agree with cotton, most people don’t realize this, but generally speaking when the body retains water, it needs more.  Try and flush out what ever is making you bloated.  Also if you drink certain teas that helps with water retention as well.
