Hey Joseycat, congratulations on getting to your goal weight!!!! I completely understand how you're feeling. I've been in maintenence for since Feb 14th ....3 months!!! and it's only just starting to feel like it's real. It does take awhile to make the adjustment.
I've found that consistant exercise helps(I run atleast 3 times a week and strength train 3 times a week).
I also track my food everyday, then total all cals for the week. To find my base I then take the average calories consumed for the week as my baseline(mid-range) for daily calories to eat on a daily basis the next week.
So far my weight has been consistant, and I'm never hungry.
Everyone has an indivdual base and with careful attention to detail you'll find yours too.
I also found that over time my muscles became more toned so trying to lose more weight was'nt necessary.
Good luck on this part of the journey!!! It's very exciting. You can do this!!
