I've been a daily weigher for well over two months now, and I was amazed to see a very predictable pattern throughout the month. Because while there's only one week or so of TOM, your hormones are in a constant changing cycle that affects you all month.
Here's my pattern, of course, daily weight fluctuations can be caused by a zillion different things, but I've seen this exact same cycle completely almost three times now:
Week 1 (TOM): Slight gain (.5lbs or so) for the first day, keep the gain for the second and third day. Then for the next 3-4 days, rapid loss (2-3lbs)
Week 2 (week after TOM): Slight regain (.5lbs), followed by another sudden overnight drop of 1lb or so
Week 3: Level out, constant slow weight loss, about .2lbs/day. About 1.5-2lbs loss for the week
Week 4 (week before TOM): Hardly any change in weight, .5lb loss total
I've been losing about 7lbs/month steadily, and it's been following this cycle.
Success is a journey, not a destination
