    Does the time of the month make a difference to your weight loss, as it's my weigh in day tomorrow and ive just hopped on to the scales to find I am now 15 4.2 (I was 15 4.4 last Sat) :confused:

    If you are due on, or are on your period you can gain a substantial amount in fluid weight. Anything up to 9lb! So if you are in that period (pardon the pun) then to still be showing a loss is great!

    I can't tell, but I think so. People usually gain because they're bloated - you're lucky! x

    I was extremely lucky to have a loss too but usually you do face a STS or gain those weeks cos like MLM said you hold onto water ..

    My weight loss is usually really affected by that time of the month - for two weeks of the month I don't loose or I put on weight and the following two weeks I can loose up to 8lbs! As long as I loose roughly about 6 or 7 pounds a month I don't stress about it - it's the long term loss I'm interested in.

    I will go up about 2 pounds in the days leading up to my period, and then it will go again three days or so after the start, so sometimes it shows on the scales depending when weigh-day falls, but its only water so don't let it get you down, because it will right itself the next week.

    Totally, I tend to either STS or gain 1/2 a lb star week but this week I lost a lb so assume I was meant to lose more but it's not showing cause of the ole gift from mother nature.

    You lucky chucky, well done! My period was due last week and looks like it doesn't want to come anytime soon, I don't know how many small losses (0.5lbs for a few weeks running) I can keep blaming on it! xxx
