    I used to put on 2lbs when I was having star weeks. Dont have them anymore, so cant use that as an excuse. If its your star week I really wouldnt worry, just take that into consideration, you will lose a lot the following week if you follow plan. Good luck

    Hi there, I haven't yet had a gain due to my * week. In fact I lost 2.5lbs last time.


    I know people do, usually because of water retention, and I'm not sure if I've been lucky because I drink a LOT of water (which reduces retention) and have hot water and lemon every morning (it's a diuretic), but even if you do have a wee gain because of hormonal water retention it'll go away without you having to do anything "extra" so you could see a super dooper loss the next week.

    Yep - hormones slow down weight or make you gain. Every person is different and it could be different from month-to-month good luck! x

    try and make sure you drink plenty of water before and during so that you dont get that bloated feeling. i find that this works with me even though i dont really get them now, thanks to my marina. x Still get the feeling though, hormones etc

    My time of the month has had no effect either way on my weight losses- think I'm lucky though as it affects lots of women's weight. If if does affect you, remind yourself it does and you see the loss the next week.
