I know I should judge the way I 'feel', and not the scale - but the scale is making me 'feel' pretty irritated! Anyway have any suggestions to get through this point of being stuck? Thank you!!
Stop getting on the scale. Seriously.

If you're doing everything else right, the weight will eventually come off. Don't drive yourself crazy over a number that really doesn't mean that much.

Others may have suggestions to jump-start your weight loss again. But all I can say is that the scale is no longer a part of my life, and I don't miss it at all!
