    How does TOTM effect you weightloss wise? DO you gain just before it starts then lose it after its gone?

    Really Jools? Well why I'm asking is because I haven't had one for atleast 3 years (They never came back after DS- hes 3 next month!)and I've just started up again! Aren't our bodies strange?

    Oh yes, bodies are very strange hunni... I lost on my TOTM where my mate( who gave up after 3 weeks) put on but then lost it the following week. You just have to settled down into the diet and look for ur patterns of ups and downs..

    What did your Doc say about not having a TOTM for so long, babes? Is this a common thingy? I know some girls get earlier TOTM`s, every 2/3 weeks...


    Hope this has help, hunni

    I breastfed my DS2 for about 15months so I expected not to get a period- its a hormone thing apparently. Then During that time i had a coil fitted. I think at the time it was suggested that I would either 1) have a heavier period, 2) have a lighter period or 3) rarely not have one at all. I just guessed that was okay, and forgot about it LOL!

    Atkins
    I just finished, and it showed on the scales as no loss on the start day, 2lb gain on the middle day, no change the third day, 1lb loss the fourth day, then 3lb loss the next day, so all in all over the week I am still the same 2lb down. I don't know if I am typical though.

    I tend to bloat out the day before it arrives and stay that way unti 2 or 3 days after when I have a mini whoosh and a few pounds will vanish. Annoyingly though my last 2 have een 9 days long!!! Mother Nature hates me I think LOL

    Am I the only weird one who seems to lose more during totm?
    I find it so much harder to lose the weight during the other 3 weeks of a month, i think it may be to do with my pill though (loestrin 20).

    I usually put weight on before and then lose again afterwards. It's water retention I think.
