I worked out for 2 hours a day 7 days a week last week so I expected to have lost weight when I got on the scales yesterday, however I had gained 4lbs and was really upset. I started my period today though and I always seem to gain weight around my period every month so don't worry it will go!

Oh ya. I'm really skinny (5'7" 110 lbs) but gain 5-10 lbs the week before my period without fail. You lose it all though after so not to worry:)
