My approach is this:
Ignore the weight, take a look at yourself in the mirror and decide if you like what you see. Even in maintenance mode you can make little adjustments by working some muscle groups more than others. Weight does not matter when you are roughly within the last then pounds, ratio of fat vs. muscle does. Don't worry about every calorie, enjoy your food by eating it slowly and without guilt (at least the healthy food).
Maintenance mode is much more about maintaining healthy habits than a certain number on the scale. My calorie intake easily changes by up to 2000calories (ranging from 1000 to 3000) from day to day depending on how much time I have, how hungry I feel, how much I exercise and what there is to celebrate. I just don't worry about it any more as long as I exercise 1-2 hours on most days.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
