I think most new maintainers want to track for a while, it does put the limits in your head, and set up the habit of how much you can eat at a meal or snack. I find my eating is much more regular and regulated during the week, I have regular eating times, and amounts. Weekends are another story, but I'm reall trying to stay mindful of what I'm eating and when I'm hungry, thirsty or just bored.
