Last week, I was pleased that my weight had dropped to about 316. I decided to only weigh myself once a week, because then I wouldn't get discouraged when there's NO change day to day, but one or two pounds in a week is reasonable.
So a week later I weigh myself, and I went UP five or six pounds.
What the hell? I fail to see how this is at all possible.
So four days later, I've dropped two pounds from that, which is still up a net of three pounds from ten days ago.
I KNOW I am thinner. My pants are looser than ten days a go, baggier, my shirts longer, etc etc. I know I have gotten smaller. I doubt I put on 6 lbs of muscle in 10 days.
I know hydration is a factor, but I always weigh myself first thing in the morning, at baseline, but that seems to vary by 2-3 pounds from day to day, up or down. I dunno what I actually weigh, or if my weight ten days ago was accurate.
Do I just assume that I somehow gained six pounds by eating healthy and exercising?
