I lost 25 lbs over 4 months and then found my maintenance calorie level by gradually increasing until I stopped losing. I've been maintaining for a month and a half at this level but now my weight is going down a bit again. I've been exercising at a pretty even pace the entire time, so no clear reason why it would go down.
I'm in my 40s so not working with sky high metabolism here, but does it usually pick up after the weight stabilizes for a while? I'm determined not to gain again, but would rather stay at goal weight and not below.
