How does having your period effect weight loss on NS? Should we expect weight loss during the week/s we have that pleasant visitor? Is there typically a gain during that time?.

Yes I am asking seriously...

Your question was: How does your period affect weight loss on Nutrisystem?.

Yes, TOM definitely affects my weight before/during his visit. When I first started the program I was loosing so much that during his visits I would still register a loss, but not as much as I would see during other times of the month. Now that I'm so much closer to my goal and I'm loosing much slower overall, depending on how his visit corresponds to my weigh in day I may show no change that week or even a gain. I just ignore that weight and wait until he leaves to weigh again and then use that weight. I gain water weight and sometimes become constipated during that week. So, the weight on the scale can really have nothing to do with what I actually weigh.

I'm usually still loosing fat, it just takes having that "visitor" leave before I can see it...

One really bad "monthly visit" I gained 10 lbs. It was all water weight - the next week I was down 12 lbs...

Comment #2

I agree with everyone else. I gain 3 - 5 lbs during that TOM. Honestly, it can be demoralizing when I see those numbers on the scale but I've finally got it stuck in my brain that this is just water weight and it will go away in a week or so!!!..

I usually gain a lb or 2 but it is usually water weight. I use to want to eat everything in sight during then, but have learned to take control of it. If you do gain it is usally off within a couple of days. I am so looking forward to the day when I don't have to deal with it!

This was one of my first questions when I started NS. I agree with everyone else, the couple of pounds is tough to see, but in our heads we know it's only due to TOM. However, it's important to watch how we eat during this week because cravings and hormones can make a woman crazy! Salty snacks, sweet treats, and chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Keeping a level head and watching sodium intake works for me...

Yes, I gain, too during around the TOM. It's usually 2-5 lbs. It's frustrating, but I know that it's just water weight. I also fight cravings, but I use the Nutrisystem desserts to help satisfy them...

I have irregular periods. Sometimes I go 2-3 months without one. The longest w/out a period was about 4 months. Whenever it would finally come on, it'd be a pretty heavy flow for days. Some days, my flow would have clots. I do notice that if I start losing weight, my period will start to become more regular than usual. Hopefully Nutrisystem will help me lose weight, which will regulate my cycle...

I've never had PMS until recently. I don't get cravings, headaches, or bloating...just really bad cramps. I'm not sure if age is playing a role. I'm in my mid 20's now, and I've never had any of those symptoms until about a year ago. That is whenever my period decided it wanted to come on...
