Sorry but I think you likely will.

Your weight can fluctuate several pounds in one day which is why weekly weight tracking is recommend over daily. You’ve been drinking so as you say you’re dehydrated, plus the extra calories in the alcohol could catch you up.

I always lose between 2-7 pounds after a few drinks. No idea why so much but I also presume it’s because alcohol dehydrates you. I always put it back on though, sorry OP.

Crikey, drink some water!

Was the scale in a different position to what it usually is?

Don't bodybuilders and celebrities the night before their event drink a glass of wine to dehydrate themselves and 'lose' weight for the day.

Don't think it works if you do it everyday though. grin

Dehydration and a really good ooo can do this to you. Just enjoy the day of being 5llbs slimmer! 😉

This isn't an unusual fluctuation especially if you weighed at a different time on both days.

Scales were in exactly same position

It isn't 5lbs of fat that you've lost in a day, and you won't put 5lbs of fat back on when you drink some water. So it isn't relevant really. Just interesting to note how much liquid our bodies hold and lose.
