S/C/G: Maintaining 142-148

Height: 5 ft 8.5" athlete who can give a punch & certainly take one too! :)

Default I reached goal 6 months ago...

Hi everyone,
I lost 25 pounds, I have been maintaining this loss for 6 months. I started this journey at 170 pounds & I reached my goal weight of 145 pounds by eating healthy and working out religiously. I am 5 feet 9 and have an athletic build body type. I work out for 1- 1.5 hrs everyday.

Maintaining hasn't been easy, some weeks I do awesome, yet other weeks I yoyo and I still have an OCCASIONAL binge day where I fall off the healthkick wagon eating the wrong foods! I do give myself a 5 pound fluctuation, but I will not let myself go over 150 pounds, I always go back to eating 1200 calories a day to get back to goal weight when I get close to that number. Does anybody else deal with this? How many calories should I be eating to maintain this weight? I have been multiplying my weight X 10, does this sound right calorie wise? Today I weigh 147, so I guess I want to know if this is normal to fluctuate a few pounds? I certainly am aware for sure of my weight at all times, being I certainly want to KEEP it OFF this time around!
