KATIEMAE10: I think you bring up a very important point. In my opinion, you seem quite healthy and content with what you have accomplished. I don't see that you need to lose those 6-7 pounds, particularly if it causes some mental anguish. If you are happy currently, then maintaining and not losing seems like a great option.
When I was at 168-170, I was happy about my weight loss, but not happy how hard I had to work to stay there. When I changed my maintenance goal to -175, I became a lot happier. I need to get back to -175, but I have no intention of getting back to -170. I came to the conclusion that being unhappy should not be part of my weight maintenance regimen.
