    Mine is very hit and miss, it can either not affect me at all or I can put on up to 3lbs. My body is strange!!

    It usually makes me gain or if I'm very lucky, maintain. However, I know it's not real 'fat' weight, just water retention. As long as I keep my sugar cravings in check anyway!

    Have not had a problem yet :fingerscrossed: always had a bigger weightloss when I have started my period and a smaller loss the week before.

    I am definitely not taking this for granted though as I have a lot to lose, but hopefully it will continue :D

    I can either sts, or gain up to 7lbs, so a bit hit and miss really!
    If you are prepared for it, it should not get you down...especially as if like me the weight loss the following week is good!

    I have one of the contraceptive implants so I havent had proper * weeks for a long time, however they have kinda come back recently and they are bringing all sorts of cravings with them!! Mainly chocolate!! So as long as I can keep within my sysn affects are minimal, but any STS or gain during * week is due to me giving into cravings than me gaining any water weight I think! x

    I tend to put on/STS the week before and then the same the week of * week. It's really annoying as I only lose 2 weeks out of every 4! :cry:

    I can put on up to 6lbs at TOTM and it lasts for like 2 weeks! but then as soon as ive had it, it drops right back down again! its really frustrating only being the correct weight 50% of the month!!!!!! xxx

    I tend to have a small loss or a maintain the week before star week but then a big loss the following week! It seems to be a pattern!

    I have some of my group thinking i'm a bit psychic though! I declared 2 weeks ago that I was due a big loss the following week and got 3lbs despite having a meal out! They still wonder how I do it!

    I gain a couple of pounds but it comes off the following week, so no worries as it is only water retention :)!

    I think as longs as you can realise that it is * week effecting your loss then its easy to deal with and it is why it is so important to look at your loss over the month.

    Last time i didnt realise that * week was effecting me and so every 3 weeks i was heart broken!
