Question on TOTM?

Hi, my period started today (tues) and had my weigh in last sat (3 days ago). Was so disappointed to have STS and not lost. Could it have been water retention 3 days ago that could have affected it? That would make me feel better or do you think it was too early for it to have affected me? :confused:

You sound like me, that's exactly what happens, I have water retention before my W.I's - more than anything my waist goes up (which is exactly what it did) I only started spotted on Tues/weds, and didn't come on properly until Saturday! so yep def water retention can take a while to change, and my waist had dropped an inch as soon as TOTM had kicked in properly - so I'm sure your STS will change and you will have a really good loss next time - keep going hun (((hugs))) x

that's exactly what happened with me - it took a while longer for it to start 'properly'. As I said, it took me really about 6 days to start properly, annoying, but better than the alternative at the moment. Sorry you're feeling down though, I promise it'll be ok, and the big weight loss will come x
Keep going Carolyn it will iron out next week, your doing so well to get this far xx


is looking forward
