  • I crave bananas, chocolate, and sodas- mostly coke or Pepsi. I put on 2-3 pounds then loose it during the week.

  • I always weigh about 5 lbs more before my period. I retain water really bad. It's horrible!

  • I gained water weight when I was having my period. Bloating. After my period ended, it was gone and I weighed a few pounds less.
    Funny how you say when you are "on your period". I was always having my period.
