I need some help

Hi everyone

My name is Cara and I've just finished the induction phase of Atkins. I've sticked to it properly and was losing quite well until the 29th of March. On the 30th when I weighed, I have picked up 2.2lbs, and I weighed in again this morning and in total (since the 29th), I've picked up 3lbs. My periods should have started the 16th of March but didn't and I think it might be on its way. Can that have such a big effect on my weight? Since I've started induction due to this weight gain, I've only lost 4.8lbs instead of the 7.9lbs where I was on the 29th.

Any help would be appreciated!!

I'm betting it is your period. My skirts were loose yesterday, but as that magical time approaches they are snug again. Just going to ride it out.

Hi Partyof7

Thank you for the answer At this point I'm just praying for it to start now so I can see if that's the problem

I'm sure it's your period, too. I get period bloat that starts a day or two before my actual period, and doesn't end until the day after my period is over - so my weight is artificially inflated by water retention for 8 or 9 days out of the month.

It stinks while you are going through it, but I always get a pretty big drop on the scale when it is over.

My weight used to go up as much as 7 pounds, and I'm a small person! Wait it out, and stick to the plan, and I think you'll be very pleased!

If you know it's about that TOM, I'd just be patient and assume it's water weight/bloat.

Ah thks everyone, it gives me hope Feel slightly better now that I'm not the only one. I was supposed to start my period on the 16th, but due to travels to Spain (which always stresses me out), I'm so late now that I know the next one is going to be a big one. So I'll wait it out patiently and keep hope xx

Stress can also cause water weight gain
