I've had a few times where I have slipped below my maintenance range, and then just set a new, lower one. But I know I can't keep doing that forever. After a panic about a month back where my weight spiked up, I have settled into a slow loss again.
But the idea of trying to put weight on - even just a few pounds - is quite frightening to me. I feel like once I start gaining, I won't be able to stop, or it will be difficult to reduce my calories down to maintenance again.
What do you do if you slip below your maintenance range? Have you tried to gain a bit to get back into it? Did it turn out OK or did it end in disaster?
