Well the title says it all.

I find that I put on about 2lbs during my period!

    I dont think i put on that much at all, if any, it just feels like i have because during my period i live in a long 'fat day' so think its mroe that really rather than me actually being any bigger

    I tend to lose a few pounds during my period; there has to be some trade-off for the pain, right? :p

    Almost half a stone over a month.

    I read somewhere recently that you tend to put on between 2 and 7 pounds in water (I think I read it on those Always sanitary towels which have the random facts on the packaging!). I reckon that I put on about 4 pounds and I get quite a bloated tummy, feel really fat and horrible.

    Good Lord yes, absolutly! How fat do you think I am, imagine that, half a stone every month, that's 6 stone a year since I was 11 years old. hahahaha :lol:

    When I was 15-17ish I'd gain about 5-7lbs from about half a week before it started all the way thru. (I'm sure none of it had to do with my snacking for that week ;)) But it would all dissapear within a day or two after it ended.

    Weight doesn't change anymore.

    i can gain or lose up to a few lbs from day to day, so i'm used to my weight being all over the place. i don't particularly notice it being related to anything, but then i don't have scales at home, so judge my size by my clothes, and when the painters are in i tend to wear bigger, comfy clothes anyway.

    My boobs get bigger before and during but I don't weigh myself so have no idea how much actual weight I put on. I just look more 'bloated' in general or more 'curvy and sexy' as my sweet ex bf used to say...that was only so he'd get laid though! :yum:
