Just Said Yes August 2024

Weight fluctuation during that time of the month

Sadie, on July 5, 2023 at 8:42 PM Posted in Fitness and Health 0 2


I'm about to book my venue but we're aiming for August 2024. I am 5'2 and fluctuate between 136-140. My goal is to get down to 115 by August and get toned. When it's the week before aunt flo visits, I need to get an insatiable appetite that I am unable to defeat. I fluctuate up to ten pounds (is this normal) every month that goes down after a week or two. Because of this, I feel discouraged from my fitness journey. Are there any tips to prevent bloating to avoid the dress being too snug? Thank you!

    Avoid inflammatory foods and hydrate! You can still snack with your increased appetite, just make sure it’s food that’s not contributing to your bloating. I also gain weight right around that time of the month and lose it shortly after, but mine is more in the 3-5 pound range. You should also check with your doctor to make sure your symptoms are normal.

    Bloating is totally normal during that time of the month! What helps is not consuming a ton of salty food and instead sticking to produce. Also, staying hydrated would probably help too! You got this!
