In any case, you may not like my advice. If, in spite of your best efforts to date, you've stalled. You need to ... wait for it - eat less than you're eating now, to hell with the charts and calculators. To hell with calorie counting and measuring.
However, it may very well be the most sensible strategy to camp out a bit. Stay where you are in your eating. See what happens the next couple of weeks. If still no movement, make incremental reductions. Many report that a 'soft landing', by losing the last few pounds very gradually, is the least traumatic approach and the most sustainable.
So you have no qualms about me eating in the 700-800 calorie range? I am just worried about everything I read about very low calorie diets and the proclivity to gain back the weight once you start eating at normal levels.
I will camp out and see how it goes. If need be, I'll go down in calories and see why happens. I took a 4 day break last week for a friends wedding. And it didn't do much damage - and I am possibly going back down again.
Thank you all for the advice!
