```Do you mean can you restrict the range Mathematica will allow a variable to
fit to?  Like if you know x should be between 1 and 5, only allow an output
between 1 and 5?  If so, I don't think you can do that based on earlier posts
I have read.  You can though have a range in your equation if it is, for
example, part of a sum.  So Sum[x+2, {x, 1, 5, 1}] will work in an equation
that you are fitting, but you are then defining x and not fitting it.  If this
isn't what you mean, please post an example problem with data.
