Default Weight Loss and Menstrual Cycle?

I was wondering if you have trouble shifting pounds a few days before your period? I've only lost .5lb this week and normally I can lose 2 or 3 in a week. My period is due 11th. Do you think my period could be preventing me from shifting the weight? (Sorry if this question has been asked before).

Is it silly for this to be getting me down? I mean, it's a real hindrance to my weight loss, right?

I never lost weight the week before and up to two weeks after my cycle. You know what it is and you asked the question because common sense told you it was so and you wanted reassurance so there it is!

Why would it be a hinderance to your weight loss? I'm confused as to why that crossed your mind. You could have a week long bender and it wouldn't be a real hinderence.

So let's start again on a positive mindset: maybe drink some extra water this week, eat maybe a tad more protein and extra greens and smile. It does wonders. And in a week or two, when your loss restarts, you'll see that this is a monthly (and expected) blip in the radar.
The scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That's it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength or love.

I was up today being the first day on mine. I knew it was coming. Mine comes off a few days later. No worries about TOM. Seriously, it effects everyone differently and is no reason to think that somehow you have done something to cause a gain. Even if you had, just keep on keeping on. Unfortunately, weight loss is not linear.
