You can update your info at Sparkpeople to reflect that you want a 0 pound weight loss.
This will give you a new calorie range.
Transition slowly over the next several weeks.
Add about 50-100 calories daily the first week.
Then another 50-100 calories the next week.
Your goal is to experiment to determine the calorie range that Maintains your weight.

If you'd like to continue losing BUT are happy where you are then how about adding an extra 250 calories a day and monitoring the results. Eventually you might hit your goal weight and stop losing (depending on how steep your deficit is) or you can just add a few more calories to stop further weight loss.

It is COMPLETELY normal to have weight fluctuations due to fluid retention, differences in elimination from day to day, muscle soreness, and hormonal changes throughout the month. I think giving yourself a "weight range" is a healthier approach as it allows you to look beyond a certain number and instead focus on trends (where a steady increase in weight is a red flag that something needs to be changed instead of a periodic high weigh in that then drops after a few days).

Regaining my pre-wedding body! Running, lifting, clean eating, lots of water and patience. Those are the tools that I will use to get there.

I have finally reached my goal weight, but now I seem I am in limbo. I don't know really how many calories I need to maintain. My weight goes up or down by two or three pounds but I am staying where my goal is. Another question how do I go about changing my goal to lose another nine pounds if I decide to do so.
