Women - PMS and water weight gain solutions?

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to minimize this? Every month I gain a couple of lbs right before my period.

There are tons of threads covering all aspects of this "phenomenon". Normal bodily functions seem to be an endless source of forum fascination.

The above posters must be men. The OP might not mind the number...but I agree it does suck to not fit into pants and walk around feeling like a whale. God cut the woman a break.

Why do people feel the need to be such pricks ?

I did not mean to be mean - i hate the haters on these posts. I just know for my own sanity I don't weight myself during the bloat days because then I see that number go up, so I get depressed, more likely to binge and then I might actually gain those 2-3 lbs! (yes, i am female).
If you are on birth control and have a few months before your big day just switch to one where you can take it for a few months continuously (seasonale, levlin, etc.). You will need 2 or 3 months for your body to get used to it though otherwise you might have some spotting and that would be a disaster on your wedding day!
