Even if you're not in ketosis, you will lose weight if you're at a calorie deficit. And if you're staying OP, there's really no way you would not be in ketosis. That said, it does become harder to lose weight toward the end. Are you exercising and perhaps adding muscle? Are you drinking enough water? I stalled for a bit toward the end, and now that I finally moved to P3 I'm actually still losing weight. Weight loss is not linear and sometimes you just need to be patient.
(Oh, and I wouldn't bother with one of the scales that measure body fat. They're not accurate. In any event, the bottom line is in how you feel.)
