As Tegan said, your weight shift could be for many different reasons. I find it useful to keep a food diary and write down everything I eat, it's amazing how easy it is to eat more than you should if you don't write it down - selective memory I think its called
. Its really useful when you have a week where you have gained, or lost a very small amount you can go back over it and see where you could improve. Just a thought.
Your weight shift could also be due to muscle, it weighs more than fat after all.
Good luck on your weightloss journey,
catch you in the forum,
