I have noticed I almost always will take a jump in weight the day after eating out...pretty sure it's the high amounts of sodium restaurants use. Even in 'healthy' choices it can be sky high. The sodium causes you to regain water.
3lbs is 10,500 calories...very much doubt you ate that much in one night. You will most likely see those pounds drop quickly away once you get back into your routine.
