Yes, my weight tends to bounce around, particularly a few days before my period. I can go up 2-3 lbs, but I've even gone up 5-6, and it has stayed all week, then I had my period and bam! it drops off. Sometimes I don't even weigh myself during my period because I know it isn't reflective of my true weight.
My TOM cycle is really random... Sometimes I gain a ton in the days before and then drop as soon as it starts (Classic PMS) ... then other times I'm lean until it starts and then pack on a few pounds in the first few days...
Odd, but things definitely even out about a week or so after the cycle starts.
The only thing standing between you and your goal is the story you tell yourself about why you haven't gotten there yet.
Just put on 2.2 pounds. It was a surprise period. -- I was craving sweets and food like mad, and did not understand it. A day later TOM showed up, nearly a week early And scale rewarded me with 2.2 pound water gain. Hopefully this flushes out soon; atleast now that TOM started those cravings are gone
