I am really pleased that you have done so well – and all the credit to you, because it’s in the doing!! Great discipline!!
I think you should stay on the calorie surplus until you reach your goal weight. Then fall back to your maintenance level and trick the body from time to time by zig zaging your calories – e.g. start on a Monday with an extra 200 calories than base point and drop an extra 200 calories per day until you end up at a 1000 calories below your base level by the end of the week (7 days). Alternatively increase your cardio training every now and again – push yourself to the limit say every second day – this really burns calories fast! When you train interval training your intervals must be so excessive that you gasp for air – that is the best way to do it. Keep on repeating this process until you reach your goal and then the trick is to become mindful of how much energy (calories) your body needs to maintain. By then is should be rather easy as the deviances will be small and you will know what you body likes and not.
Good luck and take care. Keep in contact.
