Many things can affect your weight. With my TOM, I gain a pound or two. If I don't drink enough water, I fluctuate 3-5lbs.

I usually stay the same. This time I lost 2lb... heeey!! I'm not questioning it, but I'll take it!

It's changed for me over the years--but what I'm used to is maybe 1-2 lb gain the day (or so) before I start, and then I can lose anywhere from that 1-2lbs to 6lbs (it happened once!)

I often wonder if it's more about my cravings than actual "TOM weight" --because I know I LOVE my chocolate the couple days before, and then I can just get back on plan after I've started... (hmm.. maybe I should do some experiments with eating and weightloss during TOM.. :p)

I usually gain 1-2 or so pounds, and it takes about a week and a half or so to go back down.
