I have been at a plateau for about a month , it seems every time i enter the 150s i cant get my weight to drop. I run on a eliptical occasionally and eat 1200 calories a day. Does anyone have any workout routines they swear by or any tips ?thanks
Also vary your exercise. Your muscles become acclimated after a while to different types of exercises so doing the same exercise at the same (or a similar) intensity burns less calories than when you first started.

If you always do the same workout your body will always plateau. You have to either up your intensity or your workout lenght / frequency. You already have a low calorie diet so I think you should focus on exercise and you should be good!
You should up your calories for sure. You are holding on to fat because your body is in starvation mode. I wouldn't even recommend calorie counting, portions are more important. Make sure you are having a plate that has 50% veggies at least! Eat your carbs in the morning and lunch (like oatmeal) and slow down your eating by the end of they day.
I'd increase your calories by 10% and change up your workout routine to incorporate strength/interval training.
