Pick one focused objective and a great reward

I've picked one objective to focus on for a few weeks. After a while, it just ebcomes habit. I like to pair it with a great reward. First, I gave myself a great fitness reward every week that I hit 210 fitness minutes (a new workout shirt or shorts, a subscription to a fitness magazine). After several weeks, fitness became a fun habit and something I would never miss. Next, I aimed for 8 servings of fruits and veggies a day, which went well. Now, I'm finally trying to hit my calorie range.

Set a lower weight loss rate

If staying in calorie range is the most difficult part of your journey, try setting a lower weight-loss rate so you will have a higher calorie range. Adjusting your goal from 2 lb/week to 1 lb/week makes is so you can eat approximately 500 more calories per day!
