What kind of job do you have? If it is largely sedentary, your maintenance is most likely 2,000 or less. At 1560 calories a day, you are creating a deficit that would cause less than a pound of weight loss per week. 3 months = 12 weeks, so an 8 lb loss is actually right about on par with the deficit you are creating. You will invariably need to start eating less to lose weight faster. If you feel you can't lower calories any more, add some cardio in. Also, you may be underestimating caloric intake, which can take away from your deficit. When dealing with such a small deficit, any error can be make or break on if you will lose weight at all.
