Mystery extra pound

S: 12st6lb C: 12st0lb G: 10st10lb BMI: 24.8 Loss: 0st6lb(3.45%)
Hi, I have been on SS for 14 weeks, and 810 for one, suddenly completely out of the blue my highly reliable scales have put me 1 lb heavier today than yesterday, even though I weighed first thing in the morning etc etc.
I have not waived from the programme in any way, and am relaxed that it will sort itself out - just wondered if anyone else had had the same experience

Were your scales in the same position in the floor? Sounds daft but mine weight differently depending on where they are placed. And this is on a hard tiled bathroom floor.:confused:
Or it could be fluid. In this heat it's nor unusual to retain fluid.

It is very likely you are retaining water in this heat.

Make sure you are still drinking enough water.

Also, be aware...It is very easy to talk yourself out of doing the diet during a transition period from one step up to the next.

Try and ignore the scales if you can.
