Everyone loses weight in different areas at different rates.  When I’m working out, I lose in my stomach first and my hips and thighs almost never!  It does sould like you might be losing some fat and gaining some muscle mass though which could account for some of the weight gain.

Sounds like it could be bloating. What’s your salt intake like? You could try cutting back on salt and high-sodium foods and see if that helps.

Bloating….or maybe gaining muscle? Gaining muscle is actually a good thing my doctor told me. Because then your body has to work (even when it’s sedentary) to keep the muscle there, which means more calories and fat burned.

I agree with the bloating vote!  It would be damn near impossible to gain 8 pounds in 5 days.  You would have had to eat an extra 5,600 calories every day to make that happen!  I would weigh yourself after your next period.

If you’re close to AF, it could be because of that. We tend to bloat up just before. One time I magically gained 9lbs 3 days before AF. It did disappear after. I wouldn’t worry about it. As long as you’re eating healthy and exercising, you’re doing it all right.
