Weight loss is just calories in vs calories out as you get lower and lower progress will slow down but just keep at it. Keep your intake consistent for at least 2 weeks and if your not losing either do more cardio or drop calories.

just wondering if this will put me back in a plateau.........and wondering if I need to refeed? do refeeds really reset my metabolism?!

Add cardio to your deficit, you look lean in your picture so that's probably why you are plateauing on 2000. You aren't expected to be losing 2lb/week at your stage

IMO based on you pic you should reefed every week since your lookin pretty lean boss! What refeeds will do is make leptin hormones high because when on a calorie deficit you leptin hormone will decrease.
