    Eat more for a month or two (or six), then drop back down.

    One poster who lost a ton weight (like 200+) pounds said they plateaued for five or six months and then it started falling off again. You could just wait it out.

    If those don't work try looking around the bet for ways to boost metabolism, maybe it just needs a lil push. Might help, might not but i think its worth 5 minutes or so googling. :)

    Yeah...*sigh* me too.

    OP, at this point, you are at a healthy weight for your height, but your body has probably also adapted too much to your current exercise routine. I recommend adding more weight based and resistance exercises to your routine (even if you are only able to do body weight based exercise). This will give you two benefits - adding definition to your body, and adding more muscle tone, which will increase your calorie burn, and possibly get you off your plateau.
