Where are your calories now?

You might want to increase your exercise instead, depending.

You are getting close to goal, those last few pounds always seem hard to lose. Keep on what you are doing the rest will come off.

I wouldn't try to change anything, except that if you're working out and trying to build muscle, you'll probably need more protein in the mix. That doesn't mean cutting or raising calories--just altering the percentage of nutrients.

You're in the "normal BMI" range now, and your target weight would still be in the normal range--so it might take a little while to get there.

If things stall, then you could try dropping by 100 cals a day and see where that takes you.
