    Being at the same weight for a couple of weeks really isn't a plateu. If you go for weeks and weeks and weeks, then it's a plateu. Stay on track, maybe make some small tweaks that others have recommended here.

    Also - are you sure you're really averaging 2000 calories a day? In your sample day, it's hard for me to see how that would add up to that many calories. For example, 2 strips of bacon & 2 eggs would be under 250 calories. You say you skip dinner sometimes. With such a small breakfast and then with skipping dinner, you may not be getting enough calories for someone your size. Eating too little can definitely put you in a stall.

    Sprints or any type of high intensity interval exercise routine will help tremendously. Just twice a week is all you need. 15-20 mins each time.

    But be prepared to work really really hard during these sessions.

    I'm not saying high intensity interval training won't do you any good, but losing weight is mostly about keeping a strict diet. One hour of cardio training is easily offset by five minutes of careless eating.

    Start counting calories, monitor your progress and adjust as necessary. If you want hardcore weight loss results, you need to take a hardcore attitude towards dieting.
