    I thought id read or someone said that when your on your period you retain water and end up staying the same or putting on - I just got on my scales (naughty me, I know) and ive lost 3lbs since thursday :D am hoping the scales are right because i'll get my half a stone award on thursday at weigh in YAY!!!

    Whats happened with other people in their 'star week'?

    Normally the week before I don't get a true weight loss if you like, I can put anything from 1-5lbs on!

    Comes off the week after (* week) though!

    Sorry if this is tmi but before I was on the pill my periods were really heavy and I used to lose about 4lb every star week. Now I suffer more with bloating and usually have a sts or a half off.

    I don't have a proper TOTM because of the contraception I use, but still have a STS every four weeks! I think the hormones are still doing their thing in some respects!
