The "same" thing? No. Generally, I retain anywhere from 10 (which is the normal for me) to as much as 25 pounds. It's not SO bad since I've been taking Lisinopril to help control my blood pressure, but it is so difficult to control sodium intake when you're on a below-poverty-level budget! I digress...
This is something that I have learned, finally, after 24.5 years of having my period, that I have to deal with. It's my life. I have learned to not be terribly concerned with the number on the scale a week prior to through the week after my period. What I need to do is focus on drinking enough water, and tracking my calories, and being faithful to exercise.
Our period is just a part of our lives. Eff the scale during that time. Focus on the importance, which is making the healthiest choices possible, and if we "need" the junk, halve the serving size to satisfy the taste for something, without binging. We can do this!
