This chapter (Session 21) describes the difference between a dietary lapse (a single event that is relatively easy to reverse) and a relapse (a string of smaller lapses that requires greater effort to reverse). Strategies to reverse small weight gains are discussed, such as self-monitoring weight to notice small gains, focusing on accurate self-monitoring, and using psychological skills in response to feelings of anxiety, discouragement, or frustration.
