    Messes with your head even if you can pinpoint the reason. I got shot full of steroids last week and put on massive doses of anti-inflammatory drugs - I gained 10 lbs in 2 days! Not a comfortable feeling.

    I went on a 6-day backpacking trip. Carried about 40 pounds of gear for 45 miles and 12,000 foot elevation gain.
    Came back 10 pounds heavier...then dropped 15 pounds in the week after I got back.

    Love my non actionable gains. I get fascinated by how much I can pee the day after.
    Got to admit- it is usually whole weekend away with the girls, or vacations that take me ove a 5 lbs gain.
    You have my respect @SueDonim B)

    Cheers, h.

    Jumped up 6 lbs over night in the middle of October and I still can't figure out why that happened. Never have had that much of a jump for my period, which didn't come for two more weeks anyway (it was late), and I had already ovulated, no extra salt or carbs the days before... and it took 3 1/2 weeks to get back to where I was. I was starving for the week after the jump, also. Talk about frustrating. Thought I might have been pregnant, but no.

    My dr told me there's no reason to check my hormones and therefore didn't run a panel when I had requested it. Currently changing drs, in case anyone was wondering.

    My biggest jump was 4.2 pounds from one morning to the next. That day I had gone canoeing for the first time in months, so my muscles were probably retaining water, and I had a burger and fries, which is pretty rare.

    6lbs up due to flying it's weird but happens every time. It went over the space of a few days.

    I was up 7 pounds after 9 days at an all inclusive resort in Aruba. WORTH IT.

    I had a high sodium day yesterday but drank a ton of water hoping it'd balance out. I woke up almost 3lb heavier anyway. I'm feeling... wait for it... salty about it.

    Same for me this morning. So much salt between lunch and dinner, and I burned about 1600 calories on my bike ride so I ate to compensate and stayed within calories, but so much density...now I am more dense. ;)

    I have massive swings in weight after a big carb/sodium intake. My all time record is 11.8 lbs after the three day 4th of July weekend this year. It was a total DGAF weekend - my TOM was looming, and I had three days filled with booze, BBQs, and brunch. I regret none of it! but must admit I almost had a heart attack on the scale that morning - lol.

    I got back on track, and 8.5 lbs of water weight came off with 5 days. I was back down to my goal within 2 weeks. Thank god - I'm short and that amount of weight really shows!

    8-10lbs of water weight during period and around 5 for ovulation. Every. Single. Time.

    I wanna play! I just stepped on my scale after an impromptu weekend away (full of awesome, salt-laden food and far more carbs than I can usually fit into my allowance after I meet protein and fat goals) and I'm up 8 pounds since I last weighed on Tuesday. I just laughed. I was pretty undisciplined this week anyway, so I'm sure a small portion of that is legit, but I was impressed - that's a new record for me. Not the kind of PR I normally want to celebrate, but whatever. ;)
