Don't panic. If you have stuck to the plan, it can only be water retention. It will soon come off again in a big whoosh. Try upping your water intake if u can. WELL DONE so far!!!

don't worry. it happens. it is not fat.

check my weekly weight losses in my signature. i never strayed off plan, but losses were erratic at times.

stick to the plan - it works!

well done so far

it sounds like water weight, nothing to worry about, but I can well identify with your feeling of panic!! Don't worry, it will be gone before you know it!

thanks for all your replies guys, i know it is ridiculous to get so worked up!! ive upped my water a bit because when i thought about it i didnt drink too much yesterday so hopefully that will have helped :)

Keep calm honey, it WILL be ok, our bodies do odd stuff sometimes, you KNOW that you stuck to the plan so it can only be water..... Even if you have a teeny tiny gain this week, next week will be better. Keep the faith!
step away from the scales!! I had a couple of weeks where I put on a pound even though I'd stuck to the programme completely. The following week I'd lose 7. Try not to obsess about the numbers. If you're doing what you're supposed to be doing you'll be fine and it'll all fall off in the end! xx
