Martha- First of all, welcome! Your gain, while it seems like a really big deal, has a lot to do with the fact you had red meat and a high starch. They work together to slow down break down and you tend to "keep" more of what you eat when you combine red meat with a big carb like that. Give yourself another day or two on plan and you'll see it go away. Don't get your hopes down. This is my second time on the diet (there were almost 7 years in between doing it) I noticed something important after I was done losing weight. Your scale will go up and down depending on your choices. You learn better ways of cooking here, and if you keep implementing that the scale fluxes will be small and it won't be a major problem unless you just gorge yourself during maintenance. Don't worry though! It's an easy shift between weight loss and maintenance.
