*Be KIND to yourself during this time – extra sleep – extra water – extra down time if needed. Your body will be a little stressed so treat it well. Can you take a bath or do something to relax? 

*Realize that a weight gain or weight stall is normal.

*HOWEVER, this is not an excuse to get off track. Stay the course!

*Know that you might have cravings: Make sure that you have your nice tea to sip and your sugar free gum to chew when they hit. Being prepared for cravings is half the battle.

*For some women, if bloating is an issue you can try a cup of dandelion root tea. It helps detox and gently decrease bloating.

*This too shall pass! Hang in there!
