How to prevent water weight?

I gained 4 lbs today drank 8 bottles of water and peed 3 times. I ate salt fish and a salt fish patty (loaded in salt) for breakfast. I ate about 1500 caloires so far. So it can't be fat. And i worked out for an hour today like normal. This morning I was at 238 now I'm at 242.
