    Diet/nutrition issue? Do you still maintain the same eating habits once you achieved your weight goal? If yes, perhaps you need to rethink your daily nutrition and eating habits. Poor diet is negate everything you do at the gym.

    Cheers

    The first weight you lose is water weight. It's usually 5-10 lbs. You'll always gain that back once you eat sufficient carbs.

    You probably need to eat even less and look at the scale less.

    Eating "less" doesn´t make you loose weight.

    Research carb loading. It sounds like, and given the evidence of you being a picture-less, and too lazy to complete a profile, that you have a number of underlying issues.

    6.6 pounds is NOTHING. You can drop 4 pounds going to the bathroom.

    Carb loading / glycogen loading can make your weight bounce by as much as 15 pounds in a day.

    You have way, way, way, way, too much time on your hands and have some screwed up priorities if you're worried about a 6 pound load once you start eating. That's normal.

    After a contest, I can gain 40 pounds in about three weeks, and 15 pounds overnight.

    Maybe it's just that you're working out. I lost about 15 lbs my first month at the gym. Now I'm back up 20. I lost fat but replaced it with muscle.

    And I agree with basically everyone else. I fluctuate by about 6 lbs daily depending on my hydration. So probably best to just jump on the scale less and instead focus on what your body looks like. Weight is merely a number.

    Keeping a healthy diet is equally as important as working out when trying to loose weight. Do you increase your calorie intake when you are working out a lot, esp carbs. If yes then you will have to rethink that.

    Taking your weight at the same time each day will hopefully produce a more accurate record of weight loss/gain. I always take my weight after my workout, and I workout at the same time every day. This normalizes loses due to water weight, since similar workouts should produce similar water weight losses. And most gyms have an accurate scale.
