Default Maintenance Calories?

Hi All,
I have been on here since summer 2012... lost some weight.. was at a size 6, which is close to my goal of a size 4! However, I fell soooo completely off the wagon that I gained 35lbs and went right back up to a 12. Well, I got my act together after running into someone who was shocked to see the drastic change in my appearance I am back down to a 6, and am pushing through the rest of the way....

I seem to know how to lose weight and gain weight. I have gained and lost 50lbs 3 times!! Clearly, my issue is maintenance. I think I need to start planning for that now rather than lose as fast as possible and then derail.

So how do you calorie counters plan for maintenance? How many more calories do you eat to maintain? 200? 300? I don't want to eat too much and start gaining again... this is all so crazy making for me. Any input is greatly appreciated!
No more scales! I am taking the scenic route...
