Few things we need to know.
1) How much do you weigh, and how much do you have left to lose? The less you have to lose, the slower it will come off.
2) By "trying to eat right" are you actually tracking your calories, and weighing and measuring your food? Weight loss isn't about the exercise you do. It helps, but it's all about what's going on in the kitchen. :) What is your calorie range, and your daily calorie intake? If you're guessing, you're likely not accurate in your tracking.
When you stopped going to the gym, your muscles likely released the water they were retaining for the exercise you were doing. Here's why: www.sparkpeople.com/community/ask_the_expe
That water retention can mask fat loss, but it's temporary and not a bad thing to be avoided. It's a natural function of your body's amazing adaptive systems.
Some things could be at work, although I can't really say without more information:
1) You could be eating too little, and working out too much. It's important to balance your body's needs with your calorie deficit. Creating too large deficit can slow your metabolism and sabotage your efforts. Looking at your trackers, you seem to be working out a lot, but not eating a proportionate amount of food.
2) You may be eating too much, even though you're making healthier choices. Weighing and measuring is important... if you don't, you generally end up underestimating calories eaten.
3) YOu may be overestimating calories burned.
