I agree with those suggesting you play with your calorie intake within your rang as well as the combination of fat/carb/protein as finding the right balance is different for everyone. Unlike the previous poster, I find if I'm at the higher end of my range, I lose faster, but that could also be because that usually translates to higher protein/lower carb.
Also, break out the tape measure. I've been stuck for awhile and really have only lost 1-1.5 pounds in the last month, but when I measure myself I find that I've lost over 3" and have to pay attention to avoid having my rings fall off.
As much as I have a number in mind for the scale, the visible results (inches lost) are just as important and show that my body composition is changing.
Also? I have SO MUCH more energy right now that I can't imagine going back to my old lifestyle.
