I am just going to chime in. I am not a daily weigher, I am an every-other-day weigher. But, I recognize that One day the scale might say 283lbs and the next it might say 283.5. Does that mean I really gained instead of lost? No. The next time it might say 281lbs. Overall, if you see your weight going down you are on the right track. If you ate more salt the day before, you may be higher. If you are weighing yourself at a different time (or wearing something different) it may be higher.
Small fluctuations are normal. They happen whether you are 300lbs or 130lbs. Don't beat yourself up over that, it will only make you feel bad and will not be in your benefit.
In two weeks, you have lost 5lbs. That is awesome. That is 1.5% of your body weight! Gone! Never to return. In another two weeks, you will drop another 1.5% (assuming it doesn't accelerate). That will be a whopping 3%. That can have significant health benefits. Keep going. Cut out fruit for right now (the carbs are more than they are worth when we have so much to lose). Focus on eating protein and healthy fats.
