Overall I think every body is different. I haven't noticed very much of a change for myself, however my sister, who does WW and goes to weigh-ins has noted a definite pattern over several months. She usually weighs anywhere from 3-5 lbs more... She also has more severe PMS in general than I do.

Yes, this is very common, you are lucky it is just 1 lb. Just don't pay attention to your weight (but not your diet) for a few days. Even without these days, your weight can fluctuate, and it is more important if it goes up or down over a long period of time. If you have a lot of water retention, try to add food reach in potassium, some times it helps. Otherwise just watch your weight drop again in a weak. Many women also crave sugar or salt during this time of the month, and this is where the real danger is as you can end up eating a bag of chips or a couple of chocolate bars before you notice Smile

Your day to day weight fluctuations are not important. What matters is the long-term trend. Look on every day you stay on your program as a success. And even when you do fall off the program it is not failure, only an opportunity to figure out what made you fail and make adjustments.
