    I have been having this problem, too. When I started, the first 10 fell off, then I have stalled out ever since. I think that my body is holding on to calories to figure out if this is the "new normal," or if maybe we are starving/running for our lives (treadmill-style). I figure that I will just try to keep rolling along and it will happen.
Increasing muscle mass will help burn more calories at rest, even though it does not change the scale (or changes it for the worse)-- keep eating protein and building muscle!
