I am so sorry to get this message to you so late, I could see the posts but was having trouble logging in. I feel your pain.
Whenever you cut calories, your body adapts by finding ways to meet those calorie deficits. Lowering temperature, slowing heart-rate, etc, making it exceedingly difficult to continue losing. You have to change it up.
The tricks are intermittent fasting, de-stressing and changing up your routine. (Workouts, walks, (fasting appears not to have the same negative effect on metabolism as cutting calories without fasting) This will make it easier to keep the weight off too. Otherwise, when you get to your goal, your metabolism will be so low from your body trying to keep your "set point", that it will be virtually impossible to keep it off.
Change it up. Every week I think of it as a one-week race and I do different things to win each week so my body can't adapt fast enough to hold onto the weight. (You don't have to change things up every week but certainly when you hit a plateau).
The Obesity Code, by Jason Fung is a life-changing book.
Keep the faith, the information you need is a library, barnes n noble or amazon order away. I believe in you.
