I can't seem to mantain!! I decided to start weighing myself every 2 weeks instead of every week and I gained 1.8 pounds in two weeks! I know it's not much, but I'm getting to that point where I'm thinking about dropping my calorie intake again! I'm at 1450 right now. I don't want to gain my weight back!!

You might give yourself another week or two before restricting again. Once I hit my goal and stopped actively trying to lose, I spiked a little, too. I still weight almost daily, and my "normal" weight is within a 3-4 pound range, and it is just slightly higher than my lowest point, but I'm able to stay there. Hope my experience helps.

It's not about how much you are eating but a lot about what you are eating. Eating more real meats and some veggies will so you lots of good. Have you tried reducing your carb intake a little ??? This way you will raise you caloric intake and you will manage to maintain a lot easier. You can do this!!! But still, our weight tends to fluctuate a little and that is no reason to panic.

Well, what diet are you following? Its hard to help without knowing that. I would choose a particular diet that suits your lifestyle that is all spelled out for you.
Just looking at your menus, it looks like you have a lot of carb intake. Have you tried reducing that? How much water are you drinking? Increasing your water intake can help decrease hunger and will also help in weight loss. Good luck!

I just read on another diet site ( sparkspeople ) that when you are going into maintanance phase that it is 1) about what you are eating and 2) that you should not cut back on your workouts that they may need to even be increased some. People tend to go back to the way they were eating and cut back on the exercise but it really needs to be the opposite. I am trying to find the balance as well and I am going to log every other week to keep me in check and still keep my workouts going strong. I added some strength training and yoga into the mix along with my usual cardio. Hope this helps.

The importance of setting your Recommended Daily Intake RDI
I agree... If you stick with the default you will most likely not see the results you want. I adjust my calorie range for every 5-10 pounds lost. I need to redo mine today.
