    Everybody is different - some people retain fluid and that affects their losses to the point where they sts or event gain, others see no effect at all. I doubt anybody loses more though.

    Personally i don't

    I used to- but in the last, probably, 6 months or so, the water retention has lessened drastically

    I find that one week in the cycle, normally the week before, I tend to STS or even have a small gain, then the following week I lose loads, I'm guessing it's because I do, and always have, hold a lot of water.

    Searching for putting weight during *week was how i came across minimins. I was obsessed with how it was going to effect my weightloss cos people say u can put up to 10lbs on but i think thats rediculous!!

    I used to gain up to 7 lbs, my legs would swell with water as well as tummy bloat! But I did have a massive fibroid, since the hysterectomy I gain about a pound or two, all lost the next week. But my legs and belly don't swell now just my boobs! Brimmin hormones!!!!!

    I put on about 2lb before my * week, sometimes more due to fluid retention. Think my boobs must double in size (and they are not bad to start with)

    Always, always put on. Never happened when I was on ww so was a bit of a shock, esp the first time I tried sw as it was only my second week and I had been so good, ended up binging as couldn't work out what had gone wrong. Im bit older and wiser now and have just accepted it as I seem to have ok weight loss the week after, but it is so depressing.
