The dreaded 'monthly' is my new friend!!

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!

Funny you say that because at WI thursday just gone I STS even though id not cheated once but as I said I wanted to see what the scales said and its now saying ive lost 3lb already. Maybe a pattern will show up over time?
im currently having my star week and i lost 3lbs this week so i feel very lucky in the fact that it doesnt affect me.
and mummy to two monkeys im sure your scales arent lying thats an amazing weight loss.
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.
Ive had even more of a shock today, just got on the scales and its now saying 4lb off for this week :D

Im on the pill at the moment which have calmed my periods down thank god! Maybe the week before im due on I retain water or something?! Will see if theres a pattern next month :)
usually put on 5lb the week before.... then lose 8lb next week (been like this since I started) and it all goes on up-top xx


Fluffy lil flutterby :)
i lost 6lb at last weigh in (in 1 week) then got my * the day after....so i don't know really when im bloated etc....i lost 1/2lb 4 weeks ago....so maybe i was bloated

hmm- i'll know by next tuesday, lol
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!
