Welcome, welcome! Congratulations on your impressive and wonderful success.
You've gotten some good advice. To maintain you just keep doing what you were doing to lose with a little more food. I honestly don't know how you go from losing to maintenance on SparkPeople as far as getting your meal plans/nutrition tracker changed, because I didn't know about SP until after I got to maintenance.
My experience might be helpful, though. I added about 280 calories a day and found I was still losing, so gradually added about 550-650 calories a day over my losing intake. I've just about stabilized. It takes a while to figure out what you can eat to maintain.
If you were losing pretty fast, like 2 pounds a week, you can add more than if you were losing like .2 pounds a week, indicating that you were close to maintenance.
Maintenance takes work. It isn't easy, but it is so worth it!! Again, welcome! -Marsha
