tbh hun i doubt you have, this is why WW have their WIs one a week, each day we differ by 2lbs or more, either lossing it or gaining it, you may find the actual weight of the food is still playing a huge part in your actual weight but it wont be fat, it will be the food along with water retention which will most likely vanish in 2 - 3 days x

So do you think I should carry on as normal or try to eat less points each day?

To gain 3lbs you'd have to have eaten more than 10,000 EXTRA calories yesterday.

As it's already been said this is exactly why you should only weigh yourself once a week. Stick to your points bank 1 or 2 a day if it makes you feel better ;) but really don't worry about it x
Yes I thought that, and 10,000 calories is alot of food even on a 'pig out' and this doesn't even sounds like a blow out just a social occasion you had with your friends :)

I have been much better at my serial scale hopping lately, but yesterday I was naughty and weighed myself in the morning, then again later in the evening. And apparently, I gained 5 pounds.
Now I know I ate a sandwich and drank a glass of water. I also know i did NOT gain 5 pounds in a few hours!!
SO- stay off the scales till weigh in, and if you really feel the need, save a point or two a day and do a bit of exercise :)

love, I weight myself every day, it's a habit I can't get rid of. I go to the restaurant the night of my official weigh-in (which falls on Sunday). When I weight myself the following day, I'm *ALWAYS* 3 lbs heavier. But that's just food still in circulation and water retention because probably the food I had was too salty at restaurant. The following day (Tuesday) I've always lost 1.5 to 2 lbs, and on the following day (Wednesday) I'm back to the weight I was on Sunday.

Maybe after a night like that try to stay light the following day: I use the principle of the wendy plan and have 4 points less than my allowance on a Monday. Then, I would have 2 points less than my allowance on a Tuesday and do some exercise on a Wednesday, usually a very long walk (6/7 miles now, but I started with 2!)

This strategy still works now in maintenance, in fact I'm still losing weight!:eek:
