Regarding moving to maintenance: I added 250 calories to my daily intake, in a balanced way, without changing anything else. So far my weight is holding steady with a fluctuation of 1-2 lbs. up or down which returns to goal in a day or two.

To me, this is just as encouraging as reading some of the success stories. NOT because the success stories don't lift my spirits, because they DO. BUT when you read all the people's posts about how they stalled, or they are in a calorie deficit but they gained a couple pounds, well THAT can freak out a new MFPer! (I've come to realize that MOST -not all maybe, but MOST- of those people are probably lying to themselves about how many calories they are eating)

Thank you for posting this! I just wanted you to know that it really meant something to this chic!

Hello,

I got to my goal weight for my wedding in July this year. Since then I have remained on the same calories to lose 1/2 pound per week and I have fluctuated around the same weight. This is due to one weekend a month I tend to really go over my calories and gain a pound. I would like to stabilise at my goal weight and increase my daily intake to 1520 to add that extra 100 cals per day but I am concerned that i'll start gaining weight. Any thoughts?Thanks
