Maintaining weight loss

I am basically at my goal weight, but I am very concerned about keeping weight off. How can I gradually move to a maintenance diet?
[For six months, I have been eating an average of 1500 calories and exercising at least 500 calories daily, sometimes more, losing about 1 pound per week.]

You've got the idea already!

As far as I know, and it has worked for me in the past, you can gradually increase your calories with 200/day for a week, or longer until your weight stays stable. Only when your'e satisfied that you're not gaining, can you move on to increasing your calories again. My weight took about 2 weeks, sometimes 3, to stabilise on every new addition. I gained/lost about 200g throughout the increases. so in the end it took me about 3 months to be satisfied that I won't gain any more than that.
During dieting I was on a weekly weighin, now I only weighin every month. I got rid of my own scale at home, it was just too much of a temptation! I've been my goal weight now for 18 months!

I also just arrived at my goal weight! I'd be happy to start a group of "maintainers" if anyone else is interested! I can definitely see it becoming a struggle - allowing some "old stuff" and some more calories, but not slipping all the way back to the old ways...

Maintainers

Okay, I just formed a group, called "Maintainers." Please join me if you'd like! I'm a pretty active poster. I'll stay in the group for a few days and see if anyone else joins.
