How long have you been stuck at this weight? A true plateau will last for a few weeks or more.

What plan are you following? Do you know how many calories you have been eating per day?

Yep, I agree with modkittn. IMHO, You started far far too low a calorie level for someone at your height/weight/age. I think you need to get your calorie count up to a reasonable level. That is the very first thing I would change.

Since you are still over 300 pounds, I would definitely up the calories to around 1500-1600 per day.

Also, I wouldn't consider what you are going through a plateau...more like a stall. It is very common for someone who is very overweight, to see very large losses in the first few weeks, and then it will slow down. It is also very common for a person losing weight (of any weight) to have a big weight drop, and then have a couple weeks where the scale doesn't move...and then another drop.

A 1-2 pound weight loss per week is considered a healthy level, but our bodies do not work like clockwork. It is very common to have a 3 pound loss one week, nothing the next, a 1 pound loss the next week, and none the next. Overall the average is a pound a week, if you average it out over the month.

Just be patient.

First-don't weigh in too often. If you are truly eating 1200 calories a day, you are not gaining any fat. It is very normal to have the scale fluctuate up and down at times-so don't weigh too often.

It is very common to gain a couple pounds when your time of month is nearing/starting. It is also common to show a scale gain if you ate too much sodium recently, or if you are about due for a bathroom visit.

How often are you weighing in? If the fluctuations are making you crazy, weigh in only once per week.
