I try to stay near my low range but sometimes go up to my high end if there is something I really want to eat that is out of the norm.

I don't do "cheat days." If I want something I enjoy, I have it! I stick to portions that will stick within my range. Some days I'm at the top, some days at the bottom. I tend to eat high on workout days, and low on non-workout days.

I pretty much stick to mine, but stay around the top end of it. I do usually have one weekend day where I don't track, but I can only assume I go over, because that's usually the day where we go out to eat or go to the bar and have a few beers etc. When I was in full on weight loss mode I almost always stuck to the bottom end.
Edit to add: I did not do the non-tracking days (I don't call them "cheat" days because I'm not cheating on anything, I'm just living my life) when I was in "weight loss mode". I tracked everything, and stayed within range 95% of the time. Once I hit my goal weight (which was 150) I decided to loosen up a bit with the tracking.
How do you eat within your calorie range? Do you always stay at one point except for one day? Do you literally eat at the lower end one day, but at the higher end the next? How do you use your calorie range?
