    I've my third wi on Tuesday evening and last week I was half a pound away from my half stone but next week I'll have my time of the month so just a bit worried that because of this I'll STS or even gain... Do u the majority of you find this happens when it's your TOTM or does it not normally have an affect?

    tbh i haven't found a difference I've always lost fine with mine but (WAAAAY TMI here) i find i empty my bowels more often when im on so maybe they cancel eachother out? Just prepare yourself for the fact you may not lose much or may even gain but next week things will sort themselves out :)

    Everyone is different. I go with a friend who nearly always gains where as i have a smaller loss. Sometimes it's just half a pound (which i accept!) but sometimes its been 2-3.
    Just remember everyone is different. I often feel bloated and feel fatter but the scales dont show it much. The only good thing about it is that if i have a small loss the week after is usually huge!!! this is the same for my friend. If she has gained 2, the week after sh's lost 4! which is always a nice feeling! Just keep going! x

    I've just had my weigh in and it's my star week as they call it a sw and I lost 3.5. I'm gobsmacked. As Cai said u can feel fat and bloated but the scales don't always show it.

    Ok just had my WI - I stressed ALOT that I wouldn't have lost my half pound this week coz of my TOTM, so I made a point of going for really long walks, eating 6-8 syns etc... Well I only went+lost 8lb!!!! So I not only got my half stone award but also my stone award+the slimmer of the week - Cloud 9 wouldn't be in it :D xx
