Welcome, AnnAnn, to the At Goal and Maintaining Team!! The advice that helped me most starting out maintenance was to keep doing what I was doing (tracking, exercising, portion control, wise food decisions, getting support, etc.) only gradually adding a little more food until your weight stabilizes.
You can see that it is a split decision about weighing daily or weekly. When my mom did maintenance her plan was to eat whatever she wanted, weigh daily and go back on losing calories/points when she was up. It worked for her for several years.
However, I think it is better to plan healthy meals and eat healthy meals. As long as you are eating right and staying active, you will maintain. The scale can then confirm your actions. I use the nutrition tracker with 75 nutrients to try and continue to improve what I eat. However, I do remember the 80/20 rule. If you eat healthy 80% of the time, it is okay to splurge up to 20%.
I must admit I weigh more than once a week, but my plan is to get to the point that once a week or less is enough. I tend to want to weigh when I feel skinny!! Love seeing that low number.
Again, Welcome to the team, AnnAnn!
