    Its disappointing isn't it, looks like I've gained a couple with terrtible TOM which started yesterday. I'm just trying to drink loads to flush it out and hopefully will be losing again by the weekend. Think we just have to ride it out and take the rough with the smooth. Jayne x

    You could take a potassium supplement...they help with that, plus are needed on VLCD anyway.

    Hi RebekahR ! I have the same problem. I can gain 6 or 7 lbs in the days leading up to TOM. Ir has got me down in the past, but experience tells me that the weight loss catches up with the next WI. I also get migraines, swollen feet and terrible tummy cramps and back aches which literally turns me into a couch potato for a couple of days. But the good feeling comes back once the pains have subsided and i start going for my long walks again.
