    We can gain up to 5lbs during our TOM, it's water /hormonal and temporary although for me that gain lasts 7 days.

    I'm freaking out...feels like I'm defeated.....the first ten motivated me I'm trying ten pounds in about 35 sets....I have a wedding of a daughter in law and have no pics with my husband and I figured that would motivate me and watching it go and feeling better every time I walk would keep it off....I have depression so Lil goals excited me ...ty for the info

    Here is my weight for the past 35 days. Look at the blue dots. Perfectly normal for it to go up every month. Don't worry and keep working. You will see pay off soon if you are eating at a deficit. xwfhgt8kz3zz.jpeg

    I dont even get on the scale during that "time" its too disheartening... but if you stick with it youll see a nice decrease afterwards
