i think you must have gained muscle, because muscle weighs more than fat-which would explain the scales, and muscle looks better and being fit makes you feel better-which explains the rest

i know exactly what u mean, it happens to me all the time, and just to let u know, u didn't actually gain three lbs. As a teen, wieght flucuations up to 5 lbs are compeletly normal cuz the hormones are trying to balance themselves out. Those three lbs are probably water weight that your body needs. I wouldn't worry about it if i were u.
