Reaching your goal weight is a wonderful thing!

If youโ€™re having trouble getting there, some tweaks to your routine can give you the final boost to cross the finish line on your weight loss journey.

It can be very frustrating to be so close, yet still so far away.

Weight loss is never an easy thing, but if you make these changes, you might just see the number on the scale going down to where you want it.

If you still canโ€™t get your weight to budge, talk to your doctor to rule out a potential health condition.

In the meantime, try this.

1. Write down Everything You Eat and All of Your Workouts

Many people who have successfully reached their goal weight and stayed there chalk it up to their food and exercise journal.

Simply recording every bite you eat and each workout you do can hold you accountable and help you see patterns that are helping or hindering your weight loss.

Keep a notebook and pen with you so that you can record things at the time, which helps you stay on track and prevents forgotten calories.

2. Stay on Top of Calories in versus Calories out

The only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you take in.2

To lose one pound, you must create a deficit of 3,500 calories, or about 500 per day.

As you start losing weight, your body will naturally need fewer calories so stay on top of your intake versus your output so that you arenโ€™t sabotaging yourself without realizing it.

Itโ€™s also easy to backslide a bit as you lose weight so stay on top of things to keep that from happening.

3. Measuring Your Food Can Boost Success

Women who have lost weight and kept it up credit their success to very careful portion control.

That means using measuring cups and spoons and a kitchen scale to make sure you are keeping your portions in check.

Too much of anything can put you above your calorie quota for the day, but measuring your food makes it easy to keep things under control.

The good news is that as you get better at eyeballing it, you probably wonโ€™t have to spend so much time weighing and measuring.
