Change your lifestyle.
If you continue doing the things you have always done then you’ll continue to get the same results. Make the changes that you can live with for a lifetime and don’t try to make a bunch of drastic changes at one time. Take it in strides if that works better for you. For instance, limit yourself to soda once a day for a week or two, then scale back again to every other day for a week or two before trying to stop altogether.
