Handling a gain . . .

It's inevitable.
One week, you have a huge loss.
The next, another loss.
Then, it happens.
The dreaded, unwanted, awful, horrible GAIN.
Sometimes it's an ounce or two. Sometimes it's just a pound.
Sometimes it's FIVE POUNDS in one week.

So, how do you deal with a bad week?
Some people want to just throw in the towel and say "forget it, I'm done, I CAN'T do this!!"
But giving up defeats the purpose and completely erases any progress made.
You can't allow yourself to be defeated.
If you have a gain, go ahead and be mad. Be upset. Cry, throw a fit, hit a pillow.
Then get over it. Move on.
Realize that it's a minor setback in a major life change.
Gains suck. There's no doubt about it.
But that's when you have to get back on track.
That's when you have to look at yourself in the mirror and say "I CAN."
