Thanks for the support everyone. I've been sticking to plan since I started, so I know I'm not doing anything wrong. I've started taking walks every day - could that have something to do with it?
Lotsa things can cause weight fluctuations. Salty foods, TOM, slow digesting meats,etc. I never really freak about a small gain unless it hangs around for a while, same goes for weight loss, I don't trust it unless it hangs around for a while. If you've been faithful, just keep at it and it will balance back out. It might help to include measurements too so you can see results the scale just can't give you.

LA weightloss has a little trick to get rid of water weight, counter-balance your salt intake by drinking lemon water. Take a whole lemon, cut it in half, squeeze the juice into a cup, toss in the lemons too and pour hot water over them. Stir and drink. My friend swears by it, I'm not sure of the science involved, but it feels healthy. I always added a packet of sweetener to it too.
