Stalls while cutting

I've been losing fat for some time now. Lost about 90 pounds, and still have about 30 to go before I reach my goal.
Every time I lose five pounds, I readjust for my new BMR/TDEE, just as the holy goobert told me. It's been working well, but for some reason recently I've hit a brick wall.
I've ready plenty about stalls and plateaus (though, since I'm still substantially overweight, I wouldn't call it a plateau) but I still can't figure this out. It's been going on for about two weeks now, and I've been pretty stationary on the scale, and bf% hasn't changed much.
I'd give you a list of what I eat a day, but I don't use those nutrition websites. Seems tedious to me. However, I can guarantee that I'm, even at my absolute worst, consistently eating at a caloric deficit. Most often, I'm eating slightly above BMR, with an occasional day where I'm too busy and eat less (I worry that this is dangerous).
Additionally, I've been doing keto, and have recently adjusted it to an IF cycle, with an 8 hour eating window. Worked good for about a month, but now I get the feeling that one of them (or the mixture of both) may be at fault. Is this too much at once?
Should I just wait it out, or should I try something different? Be brutally honest, /fit/, I wanna get this shit off once and for all.

I'm 24 years old, started balding really fast at the age of 20, could hide it until I was about 23 but about a year ago I shaved my head.
The thing is, at first I thought I was ok with it, because I actualy have a well shaped head for a buzzcut, and people have complimented me on it. Lately though I seem to become more and more down about the fact that I have no hair anymore. It feels like I have lost part of my identity.
My gf has been supportive through the whole process which is probably the one thing that keeps me going.
I seem to have this idea in my head that people judge me constantly all the time for having a shaved head even though if I look at it objectively people realy don't treat me all that differently (although I can certainly notice female interest has declined).
Without sounding to full of myself I was a 7-8/10, spending alot of time in the gym and was able to pull pretty much every night I went out, now I feel like I've gone down from being a 7-8 to being a 6, and I don't know how to fucking handle it, because being a 7-8 was a big part of my identity.
Are there any other bro's out here who went through the same process? How did u deal with it? I feel so shitty right now that for the first time in my life I'm considering maybe seeing a psychologist to help me with it.
