Back when I was doing WW and following the program to the letter, I would have a 1-2 lb weight loss every week except the week I had my period. Then next week I would more often than not have an exceptional weight loss. I put this down to water retention while mentruating. It was very predictable and its probably what you're seeing too.

Oh, and pickles did the same thing. Never have a pickle within two days of weighing in!

any thing with hhigh levels of salt (sodium) or msg will cause water retention.

yes, also sushi, or basically anything with soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, etc. Anything salty!

sushi itself doesn't have much sodium in it-in fact it's practically sodium free-it's the soy sauce some people smother it with that has a lot of sodium!
