I hit a plateau at the end of January. I know that my strength training is slowly putting on muscle so I accepted that as part of the reason I stopped losing weight. I know I still have plenty of fat on me but believe what Mark said somewhere. Our bodies get to a point where they just say "Hold up, let's stick here for a while and when I'm sorted we'll carry on down towards our ideal." That works for me.

I am as impatient as the next person but have learned it makes no difference and accept that I have to wait for results.
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
