I have been overweight since my last year of college, but waaay over weight since 2000. And of course, I have been having my cycle the entire time (no kids). I never noticed or really cared about water retention...UNTIL NOW!!!
I have weighed myself every day since my period started and I have gained 5lbs in water weight. GEE WIZ!!! I am still drinking over 100 oz of water a day, so this is straight up menstral cycle retention.
I sure hope it all goes away when my cycle ends on Sunday.
WHO KNEW I WAS SUCH A WATER WOMAN
