And while the weight-loss journey isn't always a straight shot—there are ups and downs and twists and turns—gaining weight despite your best efforts to do the opposite can be a major let down.

Before you let your disappointment spiral into an even more major setback, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and hop back on the bandwagon with these motivational mantras from real people who've experienced weight gain—and bounced back from it. 

1. "A setback is just an opportunity for a comeback."

2. "Every day is a new day."

3. "We're only human."

4. "My choices don't define me."   

5. "FFMO: Forgive, Forget, and Move On."

6. "Giving up isn't going to get me there."

7. "I'll reach my goal no matter how long it takes to get there."

8. "It's what you do next that matters." 

9. "The weight isn't going to come off overnight—and that's OK."

10. "The next meal is an opportunity to start fresh."
