Period and weight

Today is my weigh in day. I've been good all week and so was disappointed to see my weight had stayed the same. Later today my period started, could this be the reason for my lack of weight loss? I'd be interested to hear how your period affects your weight loss - I've not been doing SW that long and the last period I had didn't coincide with a weigh in (i have very short periods - just two days long). Thanks in advance for any replies.

Yes, mine affects it quite a bit. I normally gain or stay the same around my period due date. I then tend to lose more the week after.

Thanks for the reply. Will keep my fingers crossed I lose more next week! Hard not to get disheartened but will keep going!

I can gain up to 2 lbs when I am due on/the first day or two of my period. Our consultant says it's not unusual for gains of up to 3 or 4 lbs, and it's generally just "water" weight (bloating etc) so is generally gone the week after as long as people don't think "fuck it" and dive head-first into a vat of chocolate
