So I gained 3 lbs overnight. I went out and had a couple of drinks last night, didn't snack at night, and ate very well throughout the day. I'm just wondering what the heck it could be. Oh, and for some reason my hamstrings are aching. Could it be water retention?
while alcohol is dehydrating, it can also make you bloated... so that probably has some to do with it. And after a heavy workout/activity, your muscles retain water while they repair themselves (and grow!). So don't let it discourage you keep right on track eating right and after a few more days your body will even itself out!

My 1st 10lb Mini-Goal!!!!
Did you eat an extra 10500 calories? No? Or even an extra 7500 (3 lbs muscle)? Well, then, try not to worry it is a blip and will probably be gone again soon. It it that time of the month? Did you change your workout, sending more water to those sore muscles?
I can't drink coffee, it hurts my gastrointestinal tracts, and i almost had an ulcer in high school so i can't drink coffee. I think I will take a water pill. I think I really am retaining a lot of water. i just feel so crappy... and I started on birth control again so that could contribute to it too.
