I have good news for you: No one noticed that you gained weight over the holidays. That 5 or 10lb might seem like a big deal to you. Maybe your shirts or pants have a bit less room in them, but no one can tell. Your secret is safe, so long as you keep it to yourself. But, bad news for people who manged to lose weight over the holidays: No one wants to hear about it. Your personal victory makes the rest of us sad.
