Seems every 5 days or so, unplanned, I eat above my recommended calories. I am having a bugger of a time with the last pound or two. My next goal at maintenance is to get the balance between the protein, fat and carbs. Yikes.

I don't really have cheat days, but some days I might choose to eat something extra that I wouldn't eat normally .

Sort of? We have pizza night on Sunday night, and I always eat my half of the frozen pizza. Sometimes it puts me over my calorie range for the day and sometimes it doesn't. But I eat well the rest of the day so even if I go over I'm still well under 2000.
I did cheat on Valentine's Day. I made as healthy a meal as I could and then ate a whole ton of it. LOL. It was really the sparkling cider that ran the calories up though. :)
No. I eat what I want in moderation whenever I want it. Feeling like I am so restricted that I am cheating doesn't help me.

I don't really consider it a cheat day, more of like an "easy" day. Sundays are family days and we always go out for breakfast so I'll let myself have a slice or two of real bacon or an extra biscuit maybe. We usually go to the movies on Sunday so I might have an extra handful of popcorn. Other than that I stay really on track. So I'm just adding a few extra things here and there instead of just going off and having whatever I want for a whole day. Its easy to stay on track the rest of the week and not go off my diet all together.

So far, no. I have been making everything "fit" within my ranges. If i know i want wine or ice cream or a ribeye steak, i eat lighter at breakfast and/or lunch accordingly.

No, but if I want something "bad" I will plan my meals for the day and figure out how to eat it and stay within my ranges.
Yes, but not every week. I tried that, but every week meant no as much progress. For me the best results come from 1-2 cheat days per month. And I still weigh and track everything, and keep it under 2500 calories maximum. The carb loading helps get rid of the weightloss bloat so I almost always get a lower number on the scale a few days later.

I am good all week long and usually pick either Sat or Sunday to enjoy bad food. But this weekend I was just so hungry for food? lol I am wondering if that is due to me working out so hard? I am at the gym 3 to 4 hrs 5 to 6 days. I love it ....
