    The dreaded star week!

    I may be being simple lol but I cant find a thread on star weeks......am sure there must be so if anyone can find one, please point me in the right direction.

    I just wondered what other ladies out there do when they are on their star week weight wise?

    I tend to gain or stay the same mid cycle and when I am actually on I dont lose very much. This week for example, I lost half but know if I wasn't at that time of the month it would definitely have been more.....

    My consultant says that some people can gain up to half a stone on these weeks - thankfully I'm not one of them but just wondered how it affects others x

    When I did SW last time I could guarnetee that on star week I would only lose 0.5lb. Like clockwork every 4th week my loss was only 0.5lb when all the other weeks were at least 1lb. Thankfully I'm not one of the big gainers in star week.

    Its quite disheartening isnt it? I had been ever so good this week and know that my half pound loss was down to my ssstar week and that alone - its bad enough being grumpy and hormonal lol without adding more to it. x

    Tbh I don't really see any pattern in it being my star week or not. I can feel it within myself but my weigh in never really gets affected. I do have STS every now and again but it's usually after ive had a big loss the week before so I'm sure that's just my body catching up!

    I do drink slot of water all day at work so not sure if that helps me, I always have done so cant tell!

    Yep I gain anywhere between 3-5lbs but over time it falls off. Don't worry - best thing to do is not weigh yourself as if your like me can make me feel down and at risk of sabbatage. Try the green plan and drinking lots of fluid to help with the water retention.

    I was on mycrogynon, gave me acne. So got given dianette to settle the acne and then joined a new doctors surgery, and they said it was dangerous to be on these pills when bmi over 30? So changed to cerazette. Now I didn't bleed for a good few months, then it came and was bleeding for about a month so the family planning nurse doubled it up so I take 2 a day and don't often get bleeds now. Last one was christmas. Worries me a bit so that's another reason I wanna lose the weight!! Get my bmi in a normal range x

    I'm lucky that it doesn't seem to change my losses too much! But then, my usual losses are quite small and slow anyway!
