You can always post a few days' worth of meals here for us to tear apart.
You might also look at macronutrient percentages. Some people have success with lower CHO, higher fat/protein (JenSW might be able to give you some numbers... the 65% CHO thing that nutrition books recommend tends to be too high for some people).
You can cut out sugar.
More sleep = helpful. It lowers cortisol / stress hormones, and if you're sleeping, you're not eating.

Also, another thing to examine is, how do you do those 15-16 hrs of cardio? intensity sessions or all slower endurance pace? Maybe mix up your normal routine a bit? (e.g. mix up track, speed, tempo, intervals, hills, sprints, etc?)
I don't know. if you unlock the secret to stagnant weight loss, without sacrificing performance, let us know. I'd really like to know!
Perhaps this is where your body wants to be (despite you and others who say that it "should" be somewhere else).
There are all sorts of measures you could take which would guarantee weight loss.....temporarily until reality and physiology set back in.
Perhaps a shift of focus away from weight to goals more realistic, appropriate and attainable concurrent with the recognition that you're - again- healthy , strong and fit just as you are.
