Mike, this may work for you but I think it would be treading on dangerous ground for folks like me with eating/food addiction. It's just all too easy to slip back into old habits.
Luckily I've still got a weighs to go before I have to think about maintaining. I have, though, increased my cal intake on average some and the losses continue. Of course, being off work I'm spending my days outside doing stuff instead of sitting behind a keyboard all day. I may have to cut back again when work starts back up.
My take on the situation, and I know it's easier said than done it to stop the slide NOW. Come up with a new goal and work towards it. Just MHO, and I find it much easier to give advice than to take it.
