Ok obviously I stepped on a scale and noticed the numbers going up and not down. Well I had just recently lost around 20 pounds and I started working out these last few days. I stepped on the scale after the few days of workout and i noticed I gained 7 pounds in 2 days. Not good at all. My clothes still fit the same or at least no change that I noticed. So what could be going on? No change in my already changed diet. Only thing that has changed in my life is major added stress from my husband recently leaving for a 9 month deployment. Oh and also my thighs are beginning to tone out.

Perhaps you are gaining muscle? I heard this can happen.... Is your cycle starting or have you recently drinked alcohol? I have a digital scale and sometimes it screws up my weight and I have to mess with it to be accurate

I haven't had my cycle yet and I haven't had a drink in a few weeks. I heard that muscle makes it appear to make you gain weight, but in two days??

No, you are probally retaining water. Trust me if you gained 7 pounds of fat or muscle in 2 days your going to the guiness book of world records. Either eat a little more salt or take water pills and you will see the water weight shed off

Make some cardio training, at least 40 mins. You can also ask your doctor if you're remaining water and take some pils foe that or drink some tea...

Drink more water and if you are in stress get some tulsi tea 
Instead of using te scales you can use measurements to track your progress

Take measurements as well as using the scale. You can track inches lost. I tend to lose the inches before the scale registers weight loss.
