I like the structure that tracking and planning provides. I weigh and measure all of my food and plug it all in to my tracker. I find that helps me stay on task. And if I eat too much? The next meal is just a few hours away, and I will get back on track then.
It also helps to find exercise that you actually like. I like walking and biking. I have a sore heel, so it's mostly biking right now. I hate working out on a machine, so if that was what I had planned, I'd fall off track easily.
And join teams. I like teams that offer challenges because it gives me something new to try, something different, something that could potentially be fun. :)

I just finished reading "In Defense of Food" by Michael Pollan (great book, btw) so here are some words of wisdom:
"Eat food, not too much, mostly plants."
Offer them what they secretly want and they of course immediately become panic-stricken. ~ Jack Kerouac
