Function continually firing, run sub-function only once

I have a function that fires as an object is moved:

function objectMoving(c){
if(x==y) doThis();

Among other stuff, I would like to run doThis if my x==y, but only once per move.

Unfortunately objectMoving continually fires as the object is grabbed, even if the object is not moving. I do not have access to when the object is let go.

Is there a way to run doThis only on the last run of objectMoving?

Consider setting/reseting timeout each time, some time after last move, timeout will execute.
