During a weight loss program, you are warned time and time again that the most nerve wrecking part is going to be your relationship with your weighing scale. On some days you will want to dance around for joy, on others you will compare it to your lying, cheating ex, snubbing it as you walk away.
You have to lose some to win some. Slight weight gain is a part of the process, so when you hit the scale harder than you expected, there is no need to lose hope. On days like that, you need to talk to the people that made it through, because nothing heals better than a little empathy. These blogs can help lift your spirits in one of those days.
