I started reverse dieting about a month ago by adding more carbs and fats to my caloric intake on a weekly basis Ifor my weight was maintained or increased by maximum 1 pound. However , I am unsure as to when I should stop reverse dieting and whether I should still continue now due to my latest stats near the end. I'm the type that holds a lot of water sometimes and I'm not sure whether it's fat gain or water weight

Here are my stats

November 18 97.2 lbs
November 22 97.2 ,
---------
November 25 97.6
November 29 97.4 18
-------
December 2 97.4
December 6 97.2
------
December 9 97.8
December 13 97.8
-------
December 16 97.8
December 20 97
-----------
dec 24 97.8
December 27 98.2
---------
December 30 98.8

The reason im asking is because i dont know when it would be right to stop reverse dieting when i hit maintenance

You've put on just over one pound in a little over a month...I don't see the issue here, or really understand what you're even asking.

What is your current goal?

This.

Rinse and repeat until you're at your goal maintenance calories. You should reverse diet for a few months at least before you try cutting again. 1 month probably isn't enough to completely reset your RMR.
