Default confused

I can't seem to maintain my weight. If I eat what I want when I want, I gain weight, but if I eat any less I lose... Any help?

Sounds like you may be changing you intake too drastically. When maintainers trainsition it's usually 50-100 cals/day at a time. Also a little intitial gain after an extended period of time at a deficit can be expected. What kind of gain are we talking about. Weight fluctuates during maintenance as well.
