To break this is going to take something a little more drastic. And more exercise isnt the answer for me, I am a fitness instructor and teach 6 days a week.
Perhaps you plateaued because your body has already achieved it's desired weight. Maybe losing 10lbs won't do you any good, why not just try and convert that extra 10lbs or so of fat (assuming that's what it is and the problem here) into muscle tissue instead? Weight bares little relevance to most everything -- I would just focus on the mirror instead... and converting fat into muscle won't necessarily bulk you up, like the concerns many females have, but will cause you to lean out.
