Would cheating one night make you gain back the weight?

I must confess my sins.

I have been on atkins for about a month- lost 6 lbs, and feel great.

Last night I had a wee bit too much to drink (vodka/soda with lime- no carbs) and ended up eating...

The cheese and toppings off of a slice of pizza
about 4 tablespoons of peanut butter and 4 tbsp. coolwhip
a small square of a chocoate bar

the first half of my day i ate really well- just eggs, cheese and some ham

Today I am out of ketosis and gained 2 lbs. on the scale.

I know carbs create water retention so Im wondering how much of this 2 lbs. is weight versus fluid and extra food. I get terrified of gaining back the weight, as I hear this happens to many people.

How long till I am back in ketosis? Days? I've only had protein today.
Seems my body takes forever to reach ketosis, just not sure if what I ate was enough to sustain myself with carbs till I get back?

Anyone else care to share the turnout of their sinful nights?

Its likely water.
I don't recall how many days it takes before you get back into ketosis. I think it was around 4 days. I need to look it up in my Atkins book.

Me too. My food log is blank for yesterday. I just decided after going to the doctor that I was going ahead with the double knee replacement, so I consoled myself (translated: irrational rationalization)...looked at a pizza in the freezer and after that I don't remember anything. This morning I noticed that my remaining six beers went missing and there was the carcass of a pizza sitting on the stove counter. I like pepper pizzas with habaneros, jalapenos, and peperoconni peppers under a layer of extra cheese. I guess I did it, but I could blame Satan.

I was bad yesterday it was my anniversary i had pizza and ice cream. Woke up this morning had a gain of 3lbs. I'm trying not to worry too much because for me the weight will be gone in a day or 2 and i will be back in ketosis.
