Here's something you might try: Figure out what your maintenance calories are for your current weight. Eat at that level for a week, and do not weigh yourself that week. Then, the following week, drop your calories back down to 1600. Weigh yourself at the end of that week. Some have said that increasing and then decreasing your calories can bust through a plateau.
Another thing you might try in general is cycling your calories. It's what I've done from the beginning and what I'm doing now, and I've been very successful. Just Google "calorie cycling" and you should get plenty of information on it.
I'm a proponent of trying other options rather than steadily lowering calories.
