This is just a one day snap shot at my diet, I dont' remeber what I ate for dinner that day but it wasn't too big. I'm new to this and don't have a whole lot of knowledge on what to eat.

Building muscle? Muscle weighs more than fat. Possible water retention.

I have been drinking a lot more water then I ever have before. I was just wondering if my diet wasn't good. I didn't want to go about doing this for too long eating the wrong things...

Well dinner could have been alot more in calories than you forgot about, If you are cutting you should be no lower than 1700-1900 calories a day and be doing some type of cardio at least 3 days a week for 30 minutes each time. Just lifting won't help you loose or cut weight. Also increase protein cut down on the carbs and increase the fat intake but good fats only ie. flax seed oil, olive oil, omega fats, fish oils. Increase protein to around 50% carbs to around 20 and fats to 30% ad cardio and be honest with yourself as far as your diet goes.

I've tracked everything honest to this point. I'll adjust and see what happens.

I find it hard to agree with blanket advice like this. It is certainly possible, depending upon weight and metabolism, for one's maintenance calories to be in the region of 1700-1900 calories.

I'm not sure if anybody mentioned this, but if you weigh yourself at different times of the day your weight will vary.

Yeah that's what I figured. I'll weight myself tomorrow before I eat lunch and see what happens, I weighted myself a couple of hours after lunch not thinking..
