    hey girls! weigh in for me tonight! I'm one measerly pound away from my 3 stone award so wish me luck!!! however... its star week and I've never been weighed before on star week! I find a couple of days before then I can have a small gain though. I just wondered for those of you who gain around star week... do you find it's normally before or during? sorry for the nature of this question!!!! LOL c x

    I've gained once, and that week I'd been angelic on the food front, and it was 1 week before my *day, and I did feel quite bloated!X

    I had my star week last week and lost weight, so I think it is different for everyone.

    ooooo fingers crossed is doesn't make a difference and I get a pound off!!! although to be fair I'm uncertain of how accurate last weeks weigh in was cos I went to a different class and got weighed in the morning rather than the evening...... time will tell........ if not... there's always next week!

    I tend to lose when I am actually on my star week but then weirdly the following week I tend to either maintain or gain slightly.

    I think * week affects us all differently. I've never noticed a gain when it's that time for me personally. I used to get massively bloated but since I started drinking a lot more water it's less so now.

    Hope it goes well x

    Good luck anyway, I hope you get the lb!! 3 stone is a fantastic acheivement- can't wait to get there myself- I'm halfway there!! But then again, 2 stone 13lb is also an incredible acheivement so think of that whichever way it goes!! (Will be lovely to get that sticker and that landmark though I realise that!!)X

    I tend to have a gain or a sts whenever its my * week...I have just learnt to accept it. I also know that it will come off again the week after. My advice would be to also drink plenty of water...I loose more weight on a * week when I drink more water and also dont suffer as badly with cramps.

    Yep I think everyone is different. I hold onto water before mine start but as soon as they do it's like a switch turned on it just dissapears, along with my grumpy hormonal moods ;)
