The only thing I'm thinking is the step up in hand weights. Could that be it?

How often are you weighing? I weigh daily and enter my weight into an app. I can see an overall downward line with occasional ups and downs.
Cheer up! They coud be gone by tomorrow like in simcoeluv's post
And yes, from what I've read on here, it could possible be the weights.
But I have been known to gain more than that over a weekend, in fact in between the 9th & the 12th of this month I gained 1200 gms but half of it is already back off & I haven't tried toooo hard as I'm on holiday.
Have faith & please don't succumb to comfort eating, you know you'll regret it

You would have had to eat an extra 10,000 to put on the 2lbs. This is made up of the 3,000kcals you were down in the week from fasting, plus the 7,000kcals needed to add that much fat.
1 pint of lager = 227 kcals . Did you drink 44 pints of lager this weekend?
If you did then I'm amazed you weren't in hospital. If not what could be the reason?
Water weight- Too much salt in restaurant meals. Hormonal cycle, wheat intolerance, protective fluids for sore muscles.
Also add in the contents of your alimentary canal. Just being a big constipated can add a kilo to your weight.
Not weighing at the same time of the day. I can put on 3kg between morning (naked and after using the toilet) and the evening, depending on water retention, whats in my bladder etc.
The help and reassurance on this forum has helped me through quite a few blips. Knowledge is power, knowing that any ups can be countered with the next fast day and cutting out whatever has caused the water retention, has really helped me to stick with it, even though I have a very long way to go yet.
Doing the popular thing isn't always right.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, again and again and expecting a different result.

Other than the added weight to my workouts, I really don't know what could have caused this water retention. It isn't TOTM, I weighed at the same time of week I always do with completely empty bladder and tummy, tummy feels fine, haven't been eating any more salt than normal over the last couple of days. (And no, I haven't had 44 pints of lager - wine's more my thing )
Thanks though to all of you for the encouragement. And I'm really glad I have seen all those threads all of you have helpfully contributed to about how the scales don't tell the full picture and about how weight can normally fluctuate - if I hadn't I really might be considering giving up now.
I'm going to be "good" today - just eat in an 8 hour window - and fast tomorrow. Friday I'm going on holiday for a week and I'm going to do as much 16:8 as I can without making myself miserable. I won't be hard on myself if I don't make it every day though. I will be doing lots of walking - that much I know - and I'm going to come back a week later full of renewed enthusiasm.
Point is that the correlation between calories consumed and change in weight gets stronger over time. Over a period of a day or a week it is merely nonexistent.
I am sorry to be a bore and that I don't get all emotional with you on this. Continue to do the right thing, enjoy life and you will see that you will the get results. It is no good to be disheartened by weigh-in results for one week.
Was 4 kg heavier on my return!
I use the trending app, which indicated that really this was 400g off the the trendline and lo, by today I'm back to more or less where I started. I think it was the water from the bread, cake etc that I don't eat so much off and the walking...
Just saw Julie's great post, no loo visits...so reckon 2 kgs just there...
