In my case its both, losing my mind and TOM....

I think I am going to do the same thing. I am not brave enough to ignore the numbers on the scale and be rational about it.

Totally AGAINST my normal experience.

As a rule I'll gain before and lose after, but it seems my net loss for the TOM no matter how well I stay on-track is the lowest loss of the month... a pound for the week max. If I'm honest, that's totally down to me- it's that I give into the cravings more often.

I can't cite the source but I did read somewhere reputable that we do in fact have a higher metabolism in the pre-TOM week, but it's negligible overall - around 60-80 extra calories burnt per day in that week. It might cover giving in to ONE moderate chocolate craving but that's it! *sigh*
