I've been in your shoes. I reached my original goal weight, adjusted it down 5 pounds, reached that, but wondered...
I eventually decided that there isn't really a "magic" number on the scale for me. But there is a calorie level I'm comfortable with, eating consistently. I think that's what finally did it for me. I had a range of eating and activity I was comfortable with and I let my body settle in to where that would put me. The scale continued to slowly drift down for several months, before settling in a home range.
And here I am today, maintaining! Amazing. I've never really done that before... lost, regained, lost, regained, but maintained? Hah!
Here's to you figuring out what will work for you. You already know some things in the equation: you know you want to maintain strength. You need high quality calories and the right strength training to do that. Do that, maintain the habits that got you here, and the scale will do what the scale will do.
Congrats and good luck in the maintenance of health and happiness!
Defeat is temporary: giving up makes it permanent! Never give up!
