I thought I had replied to this with something pithy about building a house and then losing it...but now I can't think what I said and I guess I never hit post. ;)
I think the last lbs are harder for everyone. You especially have lost a ton and your body has to respond to a helluva lot of change with all that weight loss. You are building your muscles up and your body is adjusting to becoming athletic rather than couch-potato-etic. Obviously, based on your awesome-rock-my-socks-off blog post today, I'm sending this message a day late and a dollar short.
That said, some people forget to re-evaluate their calorie goals when their body weighs less. And even if your body size hasn't changed a bunch, it's composition HAS and so has the metabolic systems within it. So maybe something that worked in the past is no longer viable. That's why I am so keen on the idea of shaking-things-up....trying a new diet for a limited time (like going paleo or vegetarian or something) or doing something strange with your fitness (add in HIIT training, start doing HR training, find a new sport or something).
Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.
