Default Perimenopause/TOM question

I'm perimenopausal and don't have TOM each month. I'm overdue this month (and I tested for pregnancy, just in case!). But I don't have a good handle on how this affects my weight. I am pretty sure I'm bloated now (up in weight this week) and I was so hoping to see a whoosh. But maybe now that won't happen.

Does anyone know how a skipped TOM affects their weight?

You have done very well on your weight loss. TOM is just a temporary weight loss. You are just losing fluid that your body was retaining. The fluid builds up the next month. It's nice to see that whoosh, but it's not the same as true permanant fat loss. It's good that you lost most of your weight before you went through menopause, because weight loss gets more difficult. Not because of the lack of TOM, but because of the change in your hormones.

I had a tubal ligation, but when I was going through perimenopause I still did a few home pregnancy tests because it made me very nervous when I was late! LOL

I think I must be entering peri-menopause, I haven't seen TOM since April. At least I don't have to worry about pregnancy. lol!

It's kind of nice not having it, but at the same time I am always wondering when it is going to show up.
