FAT2FIT2011,

What you're experiencing really is perfectly normal. It's nothing more than a temporary water weight gain that passes in a few days. You may have noticed you "gain" weight during your menstrual cycle. This is not unusual. Many women tend to gain weight. Is this a fat gain ? Nope, it's nothing more than a temporary water weight gain that passes in a few days.

I can easily gain or lose as much as 3-4 pounds in a day because of a shift in my water weight. Try not to fixate on the scale. Remember, there is more to good health than a number that stares at us from between our toes in the morning.

You're doing just fine.

I hate my weigh-ins the week before my period. I always bloat up. I don't even think you should worry about it- if you're eating right and exercising, you'll be ok. Just look forward to weighing in the week after- that always makes things look brighter!

Most of us experience this quite a bit - it doesn't mean that you are doing anything wrong, and from what you have said, you are doing this correctly. I would be inclined to think that your suspicion is the main reason for this gain. Most gain - even considerably more - around TOM. Don't worry - it will go soon enough.

There are also loads of other reasons for 'weight-gain' - increased sodium; increased exercise and building muscles; whether you have been to the loo immediately prior to weighing or not - and there are other reasons, too!

I am scrupulously sticking to my calorie range, cycling between upper and lower values. I have been slowly and steadily losing. I woke up this morning and I've gained a pound back. It's the week before my period. Could this be it or am I deluding myself?
I weigh everything I eat and do moderate exercise due to injury.
