Ladies how long does you TOM stall or affect your loss? For a full 2weeks before mine I seem to not budge on weight

Sounds similar. I get a big drop right after TOM then moderate loss the next 10 days or so. After that it starts to go downhill and I get bloated despite my best efforts. For at least a week before my period, I don't lose and sometimes see an increase. Rinse and repeat.

Since I understand this process/cycle, I just roll with it and look forward to my scale at the end of my period. You may consider not weighing during this time if you find it particularly bothersome.

I stall for a week or two and then get a whoosh one day. Mine ended yesterday and I got a new lowest weight today.

I have been in the same situation. I'm due for 'tom' soon but for 2 weeks my scale bounce up after some success. I didn't eat any meat yesterday and lost most of that. It might have helped. I don't know what is a reason other than hormones which can be frustrating. I hope you can tackle it soon and feel better. =)

I stall starting the week before and then have a big drop after. Drives me nuts.

Glad to know I'm not the only one

I'm currently hoping my TOM will take me into the 150s! I've been hovering around 160 forever it seems like!

I have PCOS so am REALLY irregular and I just happened too start 2 weeks before my TOM and was getting really disappointed as I saw no change on scale but my clothes were looser. Then yesterday it came so I am hoping that was the reason why as I hold tons of water. We will see :)

Anywhere from about a week to three days before my period I don't lose anything-sometimes I gain a little too. Then the day of my period I lose. I also find that the week before my period I am a food monster! I'm always hungry and have the worst cravings!
