my TDEE is about 1,370 for sedentary movement, which If I'm in a 500 calorie deficit means I should have 870 calories to spare and still lose, However I'm only eating about 600-650 total or net calories a day and If I'm not counting the net it's only about 700-900. However I've been good at sticking to the 600-650. 

I understand this could be plateau.? But even then the last time I ate 1k + wasnt even that long ago? 
I'm deciding between lowering my intake, start fasting again, and or planning high intake days. Ideally I want to reach my ugw by Feb. But June is a longer goal that I need to reach it by.

And the other part of me is wondering if it's better to just stick it out and see if it comes off -__- im impatient. 

any advice? Could it be how I'm eating also? or how often I move around? I calculate my TDEE as sedentary always.

You need to have more variation in your intake. Don't think of it as a daily amount, think of weekly intake. Have some higher days, and some lower days. It will help keep your metabolism working better, and if you get to a point where you want to maintain instead of lose, it will be much easier on your body. Stay safe!

well to be fair it IS pretty varied ig..? because like i said it’s typically in the 600’s due to my net, other than that its fairly varied betwneen 500-900. or should it be more than that. A weekly intake sounds really stressful to manage but if it’s something you or youve seen others succeed with i wouldnt mind seeing how i do with it. I Like having structure loll ;—;

I second this. Not to promote your ED completely - but to tell you honestly that it works (which is what you want) but also (what i want for you <3) it's much much easier on your body and makes you have less symptoms of starvation, which are complete ass.

This is what I do. Yesterday I had 190 cals. The day before I had 1000. That's extreme, but having those larger gaps means my body is running at optimal metabolism no matter my intake. In order for your metabolism to run efficiently, your body needs the calories to burn. If you're constantly around the same amount, you're metabolism will think that's your new normal, and slow down to that rate. Add in a few 1000+ days to get your body back to efficiently burning fuel.

To give you a clear idea of this working: we just had Thanksgiving here, I had two parties I attended, I was on my period, and I didn't gain a single pound. My body is used to higher cal days, and as long as I counter that with my lower days, it's only going to help my body run better and lose more.
