Can you gain 1.5 lbs of muscle overnight

I weigh 77 lbs and I'm 5'4" I don't really eat much an I need toget ready for track so I ran at tr gym for 2 hours burnin 300 calories. I drank a bottle of water while I wa there. When I got home I hada lick of peanut butter and took a shower then went to bed. This mornin I was 78.8 lbs! and it freaks me out ciz I can't gain. I hate it. :.( so is it possible it could jus b muscle. Ps I'm sorry I haven't been responding to y'all I will tonight when I get my computer bak but I'm on my iPod for now ans it won't let me respond. its not a weight requirment for track. its my mind. ill feel so terrible if i gain weight.

Wait? Why can't you gain weight? Last time I checked there was no weight requirements for track...I hope you know 70lbs is dangerously underweight especially for someone of average height. Dangerously in that your body can start failing you. It is impossible for you to gain muscle overnight .

You must gain some fat in order to gain muscle have enough calories to build muscle. Protein is a necessity though. If you do not eat enough protein, you will not gain muscle because there is not enough amino acids in your body to build the muscle you are looking for. So yes, when you gain muscle chances are most of the time you will also gain fat, and muscle .

Besides you are working out too much, truthfully. You should be working out 2-3 times per week for 30 minutes, and staying longer won't help you any, increasing intensity vs. repetitions will. You need to stop being paranoid, D: it won't help you if you weigh so little and end up passing out while on track, or having your organs fail you because you're not giving them the proper nutrition they need....

Well for one thing, scales can really be inaccurate sometimes, even digital scales. It can even vary based on time of day and stuff. I've been known to totally freak out sometimes when the scale shows I put on 5 pounds or something. But the next day, it's back to normal. The only way you can really put on 1.5 pounds is by eating a lot more calories than you burn and that can't have happened given the little bit you ate and all the exercise you did. Plus exercise will build muscles but not add muscle weight. So My advice is to wait a day or two and weigh yourself again and you'll probably be back to the original.

But I agree with silence that possible weight gain isn't your problem. 77 pounds is way too light fora girl who's 5'4" even if you really have a small frame. Check this chart out to see what a good weight for you would be.

I think you should be at least 100 pounds. Remember, being light isn't the only thing that helps you run. You need strength too. So I think you should consider trying to take protein supplements or something to GRADUALLY put on a few pounds.

Okay I am a work out fanatic (at least I use to be). I know a great deal about working out and such and Jackie pretty much said what I would have said.
You should not be under a 100 lbs to start off and I'm seriously worried about you. You said it was your mind and you feel terrible if you gain weight...that sounds like you have a type of disorder. This is so frustrating to me because I have friends who ended up in hospitals because they were the same and I felt so helpless because all I could do was watch them suffer. Please re-think your body. If you are going to run track you need strength and you need fat to build muscle. You will still look fabulous! Believe me! You just need to build lean muscle by doing pilates and such. I'm 5'4 and I should be skinny, but....well lets just say medical issues got in the way. My dietician told me that I should be anywhere from 115-135 and that is considered healthy weight. I told her about one of my friends whose mother weighed 100 lbs her whole life and she was taller than me and she said that it wasn't good. Your body needs to be able to function properly and it can't do that if you're mal-nutrioned. You may not think you are, but believe me, you will begin to have many issues later on in life if you continue to be this small. Please look into it and get some assistance if need be.

i don't think it's possible though you can gain 1.5 ib of muscle quickly... and as far as weighing 77 ib. YOU NEED TO WEIGH MORE. i don't blame you if you have a quick metabolism. i have one. i'm 5,2" and weigh 96 ib. but 77 is WAY TOO LITTLE. try yoga and milk :) it works :)
