After reviewing your food tracker, I would definitely suggest these things:
-Eliminate the alcohol
-Eliminate the convenience foods (like fiber one bars, etc.)
-Eat more fresh veggies and fruit
Also, for some of the things you tracked, it says "mashed potatoes" or "1/2 serving creme brulee" or "1/2 pat butter unsalted." Are you making sure the calories in the foods you look up, really match what you're eating. Sparkpeople can be overwhelming sometimes, because if you look up butter, there's a million. And you can even get specific and say "Country Crock Light Butter" and there will still be 20 different versions with incorrect nutritional information. Always make sure the calories are matching up exactly. To do this, sometimes I have to add in the food to the database myself, or if I find something really similar, I'll edit the amount to make the calories match up. This is ESPECIALLY true for the alcohol you're putting in as well. I'm not sure if you're drinking out with friends, or at home. But tracking alcohol can be extremely difficult, not to mention it hinders weight loss big time. So if you can eliminate it all together, that would be ideal. If not, try limiting yourself to only drinking one time per week.
If you are spot on correct with your calories, and you know you're giving 100% with your workouts, I would try reducing your calorie range by about 200 and see if that helps. And if you can, try working out a little longer, or mixing up your routine.
