It could. Your muscles retain water as they repair. So it's a temporary gain, and certainly not fat. Also, I look miles different at 164 with a lot of muscle mass than I did at a skinny-fat 174. I'm carrying a lot more lean mass and a lot less body fat. The scale can't tell the difference, it can only tell you how much your body weighs - but the difference is important!
