I'm a member of a TOPS Club chapter and got to my goal a year ago. Now I'm considered a KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly). It's the hardest thing I've ever done. (I lost my KOPS status once already.)
In TOPS we have a leeway of seven pounds below goal and three pounds above goal. Since getting to my goal I haven't been very far from it. Right now I'm out of leeway and fighting to get back in, before I lose my KOPS status (I have two weeks.)
I've found keeping track of the calories I eat during the day is the best way to know if I'm going to gain weight. I try to keep my calories/day between 1,100 and 1,500. And don't forget the exercise and water. They're both very important at this stage.
Best of luck with your maintenance program. Come back for support whenever you need it!
