DON'T GIVE UP!!! I myself still struggle with the 1500 calorie range. I mostly hated it in the beginning of my quest because I always felt hungry, but just stick with it and it will get easier as you go.
Something else that helps me is to divide up the calories. Create a set calorie goal for breakfast lunch dinner 2 snacks and dessert. I most of the time have to plan out my meals the day before to see what kind of tweaking I can do.
Also keeping busy. My mind at first was always on food. Found myself always wanting food.
I know it's hard, but don't give up. Your health it's important. I will keep you in my prayers
