Congratulations on your steps toward a healthy lifestyle, and keep going.
However, don't expect (which it seems like you are not, thankfully) that this will be the way it is forever.
As you lose more; you'll likely lose slower. Also, as you build muscle, there may be weeks the scale doesn't move (or even moves in the direction you'd rather it didn't).
That is no reason to give up - your body will go through changes; you're getting healthier and fitter. Just keep it up, and you'll reach the healthy goal you want. Then the hard work of maintenance begins (yes, a bubble burster, but necessary to face if you don't want to have to start all over, as some have done). Yes, I'm preaching to myself, too.
