    You usually retain water during your period and that can add a pound or two. I usually get really bad salty food cravings a day or two before and that adds to my water retention! The best thing to do is lay off salty foods before and drink more water (which is good to do anyway) and it should help with the bloating. I usually find that a few days after my period i've dropped the weight plus an additional pound or two.

    Hi, a lot of people retain water at that TOTM, and it shows on the scales, but it comes off usually the week after. I tend to gain about 1/2lb on TOTM weeks.

    I usually gain about two pounds during that TOTM. So I would freak-out to much. Also when you weigh yourself make sure that you are wearing about the same thing that you wore the time before and make sure it is around the same time and on the same scale. Also avoid weighing your self after meals.

    Well, I seem too have lost the extra 5lbs during the course of one day! (lesson learnt - only weight yourself ONCE a week, not every day and Don't PANIC).

    Having said that, I've not lost any more yet, despite being very very well behaved. :(
