MellyMay - don't do this LOL. At the absolute most, weigh yourself once per day, at the same time. Preferably in the morning. You weight will go up and down during the day depending upon how much water your body is retaining, the weight of the actual food you eat, and any beverages you drink.
Weight loss is so individual. There will be weeks where you won't see a single pound loss, even though you were very good with the plan. Then weeks where you lose, even though you probably shouldn't.
Weight loss isn't linear.
Shoot for 1-2% of your body weight on average. For your starting weight, that would be 1.5 pounds a week for a good rate of loss.
Even at my highest weight, the most I ever lost in one week was 4 pounds. Most weeks it is around a pound. Took quite a while, but one pound at a time and I am almost to goal. You can do it, too - just have patience!
