You're not alone. I used to get mad- just don't weigh yourself after you work out!
After I run, I just hold my hands above heart level and open and close my fists several times. Lots of water helps too.

Reason: ETA: Helping with hand swelling...
I used to experience the same thing. My ankles/hands would swell and I would weight more after a workout. Sometimes i even had issues with my feet tingling about 20 minutes in. I talked to my trainer about it and he suggested drinking more water........I started drinking 100-120 ounces a day (and cutting soda and coffee down) and it seemed to help.
I also started the C25K running program......I think this helped more.....not sure if it was the cardio, moving around a lot more....or what, but it definitely helped. I've never been a runner, but this program is awesome.....cant recommend it enough if your body can handle it.
