Welcome to FitDay and the forums. It sounds like you have a great plan in place. I have bad news, though. Your scale isn't always going to move steadily in a down direction. Fluctuations in hydration, sodium, hormones, and other factors can throw it off, even if you're doing everything right. The key is to stay the course (stay off the scale, if you have to) and not let it discourage you. Every single one of us here has had the experience of being "up" a bit without really being sure why, or we know why and just have to wait it out. Be patient, stick to your program, and look at the big picture...the overall downward trend, not the little bounces.
If you're feeling like you're in a big old plateau now, change something. Change your exercise, change your carb-protein-fat ratio. Surprise your body and keep it guessing to kick up your metabolism.
