I have my official calorie goal set to my maintenance level (which is why staying under my calories is the least difficult of the three things I track for UAC,) but I let myself eat below this on as many days as I want to in order to lose weight. I do really want to lose weight so on many days I am at least 500 calories below my official goal, and have managed to lose more than 50 pounds in this way.
It works well for me psychologically and my expectation is that I will never increase my official goal, but as I get closer to the weight I want I will be less motivated to eat as far under or may reduce my maintenance level if I decide it would be healthier for me. For me, this seems to be most in keeping with my desire to make this a lifestyle, not a diet.
