Don’t worry, I’m sure most of that is water retention. If a pound is 3500 calories, you couldn’t possibly have eaten 28,000 extra calories in 2 1/2 weeks (on top of your normal eating patterns)!!

But I know how that feels, and it sucks. It’s ok to whine once in a while 🙂

I know how you feel – I gain weight very quickly.  If we would go out drinking, then late night, bad food snacking was sure to follow.  I could easily gain 3 lbs in a weekend and it would take me 2 weeks to lose it.  Sorry you’re going through this, but you should be able to knock it out by the end of the month 🙂

I have struggled with my weight my whole life.  I swear if I look at, sniff, or even dream about tasting a brownie, I freakin gain 10 lbs on the spot!

My Darling Husband and I have been following the Eat Clean diet and have had a lot of success.  If the first week, I lost 4 lbs (granted, I’m heavier, so the weight will fall off quicker).  But I have found that beings I”m eating good quality, non-processed food, I’m filling up quicker on the healthy stuff…and eating less.  I love it!

If it’s almost your TOM, then that could be why. We just bloat up and rotain water. The most I went up around that time was 9 lbs. It will go back down after TOM.

If its not that, have you been working out a lot? You could have gained muscle.

Or, if you have been eating a lot of salty food, that would cause you to rotain water.
