    Think it's different for everyone - you might weigh a bit heavier the week before and not show a true loss, or it might be the actual week. You'll only know by keeping an eye on your losses which week it affects you and you'll know which is your star week :)
    Might take a couple of cycles, although I don't have an actual period (due to coil) I do still get a few of the symptoms, but it's taken me 7 months to work out which is likely to be my star week!!!

    It depends on the individual!!!
    Some people feel bloated the week before....others feel it when they actually have their period, theres no set time, we are all different.
    For some, it doesn't affect them at all......you'll see a pattern in your losses if it does.

    It affects me the week before! I retain water, am really bloated and it usually shows in my losses!
    I also retain water and have a bloated tummy around ovulation time too, and i'm sure that affects my weight loss!
    By the time my actual period comes around I am less bloated and usually have an OK weight loss!
    Everyone is different though!

    Thanks - will keep an eye on my losses. Have noticed i've been more hungry and 'snacky' this last few days so maybe it will show tomorrow and i won't have such a good loss.
