Hey, I think you're going to get a lot of responses telling you to eat more protein and calories. You could do that, I guess, but I'm going to go against the grain right off the bat and suggest doing some weight resistance training-- whether it's body weight or actual dumbells-- to get past this plateau, instead of limiting a food group or upping calories significantly (though if you find you're feeling deprived or sluggish, you might find eating more in terms of raw veggies throughout the day will make you feel a ton better).

I would certainly try eating normally (near maintenance levels, or around 2000 calories) once a week, too, just so you don't feel deprived and your body stays happy. I know when I stall after a while at a low-cal level, a spike day with a resistance workout usually kicks my body back into gear. Make sure you're accountable for everything you eat, too. Don't allow little snacks and bites of things go unaccounted for, or else you won't have the deficits want and are recording.

On another note, are you going through stress? I can't lose when I'm under pressure. Perhaps trying some breathing exercises before bed will help, too!

I wouldn't worry about a plateau. Sometimes it's due to changes internally in your body. Thought I'm not fully knowing what you're doing, but if you take into measurements, fat percentage, and lean muscle mass into consideration, you might see that your body is losing more body fat while increasing some lean muscle mass, which in turn can be heavier.

Pending on your current diet plan and your exercise regime, can totally help determine what's really going on with your system.
