Hi Zennith and welcome to the team! You can find some articles and blogs about making the transition to maintenance if you look in our Team Links section, which you can find under the Team Stream on the right side of the page here.
I basically did what you're looking to do once I got my BMI down to 25. In the beginning, I didn't change anything because I had a somewhat irrational fear that any increase in calories would cause me to regain all of my weight. Eventually I started adding 100 calories a day at a time (I'd allow two or three weeks before adding another 100) and found that I was still losing! By the time I had upped them to the point where I stopped losing, I had lost another 10 pounds and that's pretty much where I've been since then. I've since adjusted the number of calories I eat downward six days a week to about 200-300 calories a day over my weight loss levels. This allows me to be more liberal with my weekend splurges without gaining.
Hope this is helpful. I know you'll receive lots of great advice from our members here! Please feel to ask me or one of the other leaders if you ever have any questions and if you have a question you'd like to put out to the team, don't be afraid to start up a new discussion thread.
My name's Tina. I lost more than 90 pounds between March 2010 and March 2012 and have been keeping if off ever since.
