I dropped my caloric intake to ~2,900 calories and started to lose 1 lbs a week. I did barely any cardio but went to the gym and hit the weights heavy and often. Last month at my competition, I weighed in at 199 lbs after a bit of a water cut.

Bottom line: At 300 lbs, you should be losing weight at a caloric intake much higher than 2,000 calories. If you are not, you need to check your calorie counting methods for accuracy or make sure you are following a proper resistance training and cardiovascular program.
I think my metabolism slowed to a crawl. Im going to bump it up to 2200 calories and try from there.
