Your ticker says that you have lost 40 pounds. How about looking at how far you have come, you are doing great.
Make a visual - do you have a five gallon bucket? Full of water, they weigh 40 pounds, try carrying that thing around for a couple minutes. No bucket, how about a 40 pound bag of dog food slung over your shoulder. After a few minutes of that, you'll feel so light, you will be skipping around.
Sweet thing about this is, it will not only make you feel better about how far you've come, it will keep you focused on continuing your journey.
I once heard plateaus were areas where the body had been before and they wanted that comfort zone. Keep prying at those little catchers and they will eventually let go and you will be headed for the next plateau.
Also keep in mind, the slower it comes off, the longer it will stay off.
And finally, if you feel you need to do something, review the basics, are you doing everything you should be. If you are, cut yourself some slack - that 40 pounds has been an excellent start to reaching your healthy self!
