You have a range for a reason. USE it! Experiment with what works. Losing that first 6 lbs was likely just water weight; we often lose a bunch in the beginning as our body sheds water in response to our healthier choices.
Use your range. You won't gain eating at the high end of the range! In fact, check out this thread FULL of people who ate more, and started losing weight: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.a
It's also time to ditch the diet mentality. No more deprivation and diets. Diets don't work! This is healthy living, for life: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_ar
In fact, the more you exercise, the more you will need to eat to support that exercise!
