I'm having the same problem. I've lost 10 lbs this year, but for the past month or so I can't get the scale to budge. I've been working out and counting calories too.

When you first started losing weight, do you remember how quick and easy it came off? It was what I call a "new shock" your body goes through. I hit SEVERAL plateaus in my journey. I wouldn't let it stress me out though. So what i did to break it was take 2 weeks off from hard exercise. I still watched what I ate, but I lowered my physical activity in order to let my body adjust to the weight loss. Then right when my body thought it was "comfortable", I started the exercise in full force. Which brought me back to the "beginning" That first week back, I ALWAYS got results. Maybe you can try that. It worked really well for me.
