I think I'm just not going to weigh myself until my period is over because it really takes an emotional toll on women trying so hard to lose weight to see the scale go up so quickly when you've done nothing wrong. I'm going to continue my exercise and eating regimen, and hopefully in a week I'll at least be back to where I was before this week. The one thing I read though is that decreasing sodium intake is especially helpful during your TOM (time of the month) to counteract all the bloating.
Ahh the joys of womanhood....

I don't think there is a way of compensating for this physically. It's a mental thing. I'm going through the same thing. I started yesterday and last week I had an 11lb gain. I got to where I was depressed about it. I was swollen, I was heavier, I figured I was a failure. The SBUDDY ladies really helped me out. I decided that I'm going to continue to eat better and move and no matter what my crazy body did, I would eventually get healthier. It just had no option. So other than continuing on doing right, I don't think we can alter how our bodies react to this hormone fluctuation.

So I just got my period for the first time since I joined Spark People and I remembered it sometimes has an effect on my weight. Do you think I should adjust my exercise, nutrition, or water intake in any way to compensate during this monthly occurrence?
