I've gained more than 3 lbs in 3 days due to water retention. My work out from Friday left me so incredibly sore for 3 days. The first day after I gained 1/2 a pound. The next day I gained 2.4 lbs and then today I was up another LB!
Craziness. I'm drinking so much water, but it's not flushing out.. I should be going to the bathroom every 20 minutes the way I'm drinking, but my tired and achy muscles are holding on to everything!
I worked out again tonight. Sometimes it's emotionally hard because I remember how easy it had gotten and now it's hard again. But then I try to overcome it and think "This is how I start...I just have to keep moving forward."
Hopefully I won't gain another 2 lbs from this workout! I know muscle weighs more than fat, but I know for sure this is all water weight.
