Ah, that sucks! First, congratulations on your weight loss so far, and for not giving up once you hit the wall! I wish I had more experience so I could give you some helpful advice, but I know if you do a quick search of the forums (up in the purple toolbar) you'll find heaps of posts full of good advice.
For me, it was a case of switching it up - it was time for me to start exercising more, so I got some workout and yoga DVDs and make an effort to do one of them every day. I know that a lot of people have success increasing or decreasing their food intake a little bit.
Best of luck!
