Welcome to the board Jan.
I'm not sure either on the exact number of days it takes. But I do know it happens and if I eat icky for even up to a week I can lose it all VERY fast within the next week. It's when I don't pay attention to the slight gain that will get me every time. I'm thinking two days or so, not sure though. But also don't forget salt intake really plays a factor in this also. It can make your scale go nuts! :)

It takes 3500 calories to make 1 single pound. if you are burning more than what you consume you will lose...if you are burning the same amount you consume, you will lose slower or maybe not at all, but you wont gain either.
this is what is working for me...for every pound you weigh add 100 calories. it will take that much to keep you at the weight you are now. i am 240 so if i eat 2400 cals a day, given that i burn it off thru my walking, working or whatever activity instead of loafing around motionless lol, i will stay at 240. I want to weigh 130. so i consume 1300 cals a day. no matter how much i weigh, i keep it at that amount and its been working...you dont have to starve to do it either. i fill most of my diet of healthy food, snacking on fruit or string cheese or raisins or something along those lines throughout the day, not eating out, just sticking to a simple turkey sand with mayo for lunch, and then an easy dinner...anything i want without using oils butters or frying. mostly chicken and veggies...
