Do you weight gain during periods?

Postby ProudMumOf1 » Sat Feb 23, 2008 1:53 pm

I gained 200g this week :cry: I think cause I got my periods today!
Feel pretty crap about it. Does this happen to anyone else. Even if you have been perfect with your eating and exercise, do you gain weight during your periods?
How much?

some girls can gain a couple of kilos, its not unusual at all. I tend to flactuate between 1-2kg at that time.

fustrating lol don't I know it...
So maybe I lost about 1-2kg but I just don't know as I havn't weighed myself since last Saturday!
I normally retain between 1-2kg as well.
I can't wait till next weigh too see what happens. I'm so disapointed I wanted to get to 83kg next weigh in and it feels impossible now. Because the scales say I havn't lost any weight this week because of my p's :x

I am not sure the exact amount, but I always fail to lose as much.....BUT by day 2 of my period, I can feel the "bloated" feeling has gone, and I my weight seems to "go back to normal"? Water retention maybe? Dunno. Its a PITA. (But when my period shows up I am always relieved.....the thought of being pregannt again fills me with horror, LOL! (I already have 3 children under 4!)

I am on Kate Morgan and I avoid a weigh in with them if I have my period....too demoralising.......

Some info I found regarding PMS that might help:


What are Pre-menstrual Symptoms?
PMS (Pre-menstrual Syndrome) is a term used to describe any symptoms which occur any time after ovulation and disappear almost as soon as the period arrives. So the crucial point is not what symptoms you experience but when.

What are the symptoms of PMS?

This is where a lot of confusion has arisen because over 150 symptoms can be classed as PMS. These can include:

Mood swings Irritability
Anxiety and tension Bloating
Breast tenderness and swelling Water retention
Acne Tiredness
Weight gain Headaches/migraines
Crying Spells Depression
Sugar and food cravings Constipation
Dizziness

Quite a list! Personality changes associated with this time can be very severe with some women describing a Jekyll and Hyde change where they literally become a different person pre-menstrually. Women say that they know they are feeling and thinking differently to the point of being irrational but they have no control over those changes. For some women at that time the world seems completely negative, 'everything seems black', doom and gloom and they will often cry at the slightest thing without any real reason.

I get PMS really badly...I get so sick before and during my period that my doctor suggested I stay on the pill and only have my period every 10 weeks...

That whole list describes me to a T!!! Gotta love being a woman.... :|

Yep I sure do !!!!! But I tend to gain a little around the week before. This is when I eat like a pig out of control and then I have gained it when they come. But after I finish I usually am back to my normal weight.

I tend to bloat in the few days before my period and like previous people, I can feel the bloating gone by end of Day 1/Day 2.

It really sucks in terms of weight loss, but if you plot your weight loss on a chart, I reckon you'd see a 4 week cycle and you'd be able to explain your gains better. I know people who consistently lose for 3 weeks, then put on during the 4th week. Not much you can do about it, but know it's periods, ignore it and then keep going.

If it really messes with your motivation, then skip a week for weighing every 4 weeks.
Cheers,
Kate

I never take much notice of my weight around this time, even if I weigh. I retain water too well so my weight will be increased during my periods.

I'm on the pill.. and I trycycle so I skip my period on my pill 3 times before I get it.

I haven't ever noticed a weight gain, but i don't weigh every day that would be why i might not notice it.

Oh yeah I gain weight during TTOM. Around 2-3kgs :shock:

And two weeks leading up to my period all I want to do is gorge gorge gorge. I get a hunger that I just can't satisfy and when I do have my period I lose my apatite and have to remind myself to eat :roll:
Start weight - 77kgs
Goal weight - 53kgs
Current Weight - 50.1kgs


No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

I gain between 1-2kg's too but when I do get it my pains are so bad it give me a really upset stomach so was water retention turns into de-hydration. Being a woman sucks once a month :evil:
