Calorie Cycling...what an interesting idea. I think I will incorporate that also. And I have made plans to increase exercise. Thanks all.

It worked for me. I got stuck at 120 last time I hit a plateau after decreasing my cals from 1400-1200 for 6 weeks after a previous plateau. I lost about 15 lbs in that 6 weeks but then got stuck again as my body adjusted to the lower calorie intake. Not to mention it was torture eating that low. I upped my calories back up to 1400 cals and began calorie cycling around that number. I've lost 5 lbs in the last two weeks since then.
I think sometimes you just need confuse or rev up your metabolism by eating more. It was strange before I even tried calorie cycling or upping my calories. I did notice on weeks where I ate over the amount of calories I aimed for I'd actually lose more weight. So I don't know exactly what to attribute the break through to or if it was a combination of both a calorie increase and calorie cycling.

Many people have, quite successfully. Here's a whole thread to that effect!

I've done it - both diet and exercise. It helped. Our bodies get used to the same old routines and become stagnant.

Are you planning on changing up your exercise routine to go with it? That can really help bust through in conjunction with a change in calorie allotment. Changing whatever balance you have between strength and cardio, or even changing the type of cardio you normally do can help.

Been hovering now for months after losing 20 lbs over 2+ years.
After reading a SP article on the subject I will increase my calories 200 per day for a week to 10 days as an experiment. I could go up 400 according to my range but that is just too scary.
Have any of you done this and were you successful?
