I'm curious about this -
If you're in maintenance, do you expect to stay strictly within a calorie 'budget' and maintain your weight consistently (barring scale weight fluctuations via water or whatever)? Do you expect your weight to drift up to a 'scream weight' and then gradually lower it (with or without tracking)? Track your calories and allow for some gain/loss ANYWAY and have a scream weight where you switch to a deficit or intentionally gain? Something else entirely?
I think at this point I kind of expect that my average weight will go up some, hit a self-imposed ceiling and then I'll have a deficit again. This is what I expect it be, basically forever (and that's fine for me - also I don't know if I'll want to lose more from where I am now - talk to me in August or September).
But I also know this is not the only way and I'm curious, so tell me what maintenance is for you. What's your approach?
