maintained (i.e. was below 77.5 kg, and mostly below 75 kg) from February 2015-July 2017; was then put on a medication and gained 2 kg in a month; went on sabbatical (away from scales; lots of conference meals); hit (peri-)menopause and lost track of things except to note that I was steadily gaining and back to 85/86 kg.
Lost to 81 kg at Easter 2020 (top of normal bmi for me), but then gained back to 88 kg in April/May (Easter egg binge; lock down closed the pool...).

Still losing, with 2.5 kg to go, but now in my maintenance range. Since I have lost and gained before (see above) I really want to plan for maintenance this time, so thought I would join this thread now. (I hope that is OK.)
After maintaining for a while at 75 kg, I may adjust my maintenance weight down to 72 kg (+/- 2.5), but I want to wait for a few months before making that decision.
Comment on this week:
Today's weight is above my maintenance range, and I am not sure what is going on. Last week I was comfortably below 77 kg (weighing after exercise), but this week I have been a bit above). I am still eating at a deficit which is meant to have me losing 1 kg per month, though for the past two months I have actually lost ca. 1.5 kg per month. I ate bove this two weekends ago: is this a delayed response by my body? It is also possible that my body is adjusting to my upping my rowing for a November challenge. Over the weekend I rowed 13km and walked 9km, which was quite a lot, though my practice is to eat back my exercise calories. Tuesday is my rest day and the day I weigh without exercising. I might be down again tomorrow after my rest day. We'll see...
On the plus side, my averages are still in my maintenance range, albeit towards the top.

Welcome, charmmeth! Nice to see yet another experienced weight-maintainer/monitor here. Good write-up!
My guesses are that your weight could be up because of hormones; or due to eating more carbs some days; or due to losing/regaining glycogen stores after/before exercising.
