First of all - congratulations!!! You are doing such a wonderful job of maintaining discipline and a positive outlook...and you have been very patient, recognizing that a slow gradual weight loss is the best kind.
But I think you are also realizing that when you have lost most of the weight you wish to (you don't mention your height, but I'm guessing you are approaching your goals) weight loss can slow down considerably. This can definitely be frustrating, but as you lose weight, your metabolism goes down too. Therefore, your caloric needs are much lower than they were six months ago when you were heavier.
Given that you seem to have a good handle on your daily calorie intake, an interesting next step might be to go online and find a calculator for your basal energy expenditure (i.e. how many calories you need a day) - this is based on your age, sex, height, and weight. Then you can see where your current 1400 calories fit in. You might find that you will continue to lose weight, but much more slowly (even a pound every week or two). That's okay! Don't let it frustrate you, because it will work if you give it time. Very proud of you!
my height is 5'5" and thank you for the advice, i looked up some calculators

Extreme Fat Loss:
This one say 1200 cals for day and ill lose 2 lbs a week.
However, ive been told that a 1200 calorie diet is not very effective long term and its not healthy to go so low. so im not sure what to do.
do you think perhaps i should increase my calories? its frustrating not to lose weight when i was losing it weekly so well.
