What's your calorie range, and your actual daily protein intake per day? Have you updated your goals here recently?
Sparkpeople doesn't update your goals automatically as you lose weight. They recommend saving your goal data every 10-15 lbs. You may be eating too much if you haven't changed your program in 60 lbs. :)
Also: Holy COW you're making good progress. Just be aware that your loss WILL slow down the less you have to lose. You're still in the 2 lbs a week range right now, but you won't be losing as fast as you did in the early days.

Hello everyone... let me give you guys a quick background.. In early January, I weighted 310lbs at 5'10" and 30 years old. As of date, I weight 251ish, thus I have lost nearly 60 lbs. My goal is to get to close to 200lbs as possible before the Thanksgiving/Christmas holidays arrive. My short term goal was to get close to 235 lbs before I leave for my vacation to San Diego on June 19th... I have been eating a good amount of protein and a fair share of carbs (mostly veggies/fruits). I have been averaging like 35-55% protein, 40-60% carbs, 10-25% fat, I am getting a little frustrated because my weight loss is going slower than i anticipated and i am sure i am still above 30% body fat. I am thinking of doing a short term low carb diet to change it up. Is that a good idea or no? Any suggestions? Quick note, I have changed my workout but seem little success with it.
