Plateaus are normal and if you keep it up, you should begin to see loss again.  The other thing to remember is that your ‘losing’ calorie budget when you were 162 is now going to be lower at 148.  And you lose more calories with exercise the larger you are, so the lower your weight, the less calories you’re burning with the same exercises.  Make sure you’re making the adjustments every once in awhile…but remember, this is a great thing!  

I’d also recommend being sure to change up your exercise type frequently, as the longer you do the same exercises, the more ‘efficient’ your body becomes at performing them, and so it takes less work/calories to run 5 miles once you’ve been doing it for 3 months in a row.  

I think the most important thing is to stay motivated through the plateau, and you may naturally start seeing the loss again in a few weeks.  The plateau is a dangerous place, because many people are motivated by seeing loss and can get discouraged and give up during this period.  Stay strong, it sounds like you are doing a wonderful job!
