When you reach your goal weight you can update MFP to say you want to lose 0 pounds per month and it's adjust you calories target accordingly, I've used it quite a bit when I've reached certain goals and wanted to maintain for a few weeks but not gain anything before the next target. Even if you only do it for a few weeks it teaches you what level you should be eating now to maintain. Another thing I have done that worked in the past it any calories I earn through exercise I use. I'm back in my 1 pound a week target (only 0.5 this week :-( ) but only three to go myself :-)

Well done on the loss BTW and for getting to target.
