Default Ladies please: whoosh question

I have PCOS and with the PCOS my cycles are extremely irregular. Sometimes 9 months will go by, so I have no records of anything routine about my body. So I have no idea how my body reacts with regard to water retention or lack of progress during TOM.

So last week was TOM for me and I had two weeks of a .2 loss. Then this week I lost 8.2 lbs!! Is this normal or do you think I should increase my calories? I lost about 12 lbs my first week, then a couple weeks of 2 lb losses then those two weeks of .2 losses. So is 8.2 a normal "whoosh" week?
Long term goal: To still be calorie counting 11/9/2010
mini goals: ~211-10% lost;12/24/09 ~203 class I obesity 1/28/10; ~199 Onederland/15% 2/19/10; ~188-20%; ~185 half way 5/14/10; 179-bye 180's 6/12/10; ~174 overweight 7/3/2010;169-bye 170's 8/13/10;~164-30% 10/23/2010159-bye 160's~11/1/10; 153-35%~12/23/10; 149-bye 150's~2/11/11; 145 normal~2/14/2011; ~141-40%; 139-bye 140's ~135 GOAL!

I usually whoosh after TOM. Just be prepared that you may bounce back a little, so don't let that freak you out.

I would say as long as you are doing everything the healthy way no need to change your intake as long as you are feeling fine. If you were feeling weak, dizzy, very tired, then I'd say change it up.

Great job btw

My losses seem to be working where I'll have two weeks where I lose approx .5 lbs and the the next two weeks I'll loose 3 or more. After the second 3 lb loss week it usually goes back up .5 to 1 lb but the goes back off in the next whoosh. It's kind of a rollercoasterbut with an overall downward trend.
