got to be water weight.

or the scale, or so many things, so many factors. Seriously, give your body a rest with the salt, etc for the day and see what happens. weigh yourself tomorrow.

make sure you are weighing yourself under the same conditions every time you do so. Usually the best time is in the morning, with nothing on.

Did you drink a lot of alcohol?

Lots of sugar in alcohol which converts to fat that clings to your belly. Fried foods also has a tendency to do this. And a hidden culprit? Soy sauce. I've experienced at least a 5 pound fluctuation on the scale following just one evening on sushi.

weight varies considerably throughout the day

I always weigh myself in the morning before breakfast just to be consistent.

But on a couple of occasions I stepped on the scale later in the day. One time I weighed 8 lbs more! No joke.

I think you digest food, lose water, etc. during the night. If you weigh yourself during the day, you're weighing all that food and water you've consumed.

Don't weight yourself like that, you will get discouraging results. Weigh yourself in the morning before eating or drinking and you'll get a more accurate picture of the trend.

I will add that there have been days when I splurged and the next day went back to normal, and the weight immediately dropped right back down... my theory is that your body always seeks homeostasis -- It wants to maintain whatever your current weight is.
