O.K. - 10lb weight loss in one week is waaaaayy too much IF it was a genuine loss.
It spiked back up so in two weeks that amounted to a 4lb loss and that is really about what you should be aiming at!
There are a lot of variables with weight - TOM; the physical weight of your last meal (not yet passed through); the amount of sodium in your diet; whether you went to the loo prior to your first weigh-in but not the second one; if you were wearing clothes were they the same? Even the time of day you weighed compared to the previous one. There are other factors too, but these are mostly the more common ones.
Don't rely on weight as the guide to whether you are winning your war. That is only a small part of the story. How your clothes feel (generally too soon to tell yet); your energy level; the quality of your sleep; the condition of your hair/skin, etc. etc.
For the time being I would be inclined to ditch the scales and rely more on the other things. If you are eating nutritious food and in a healthy calorie range AND getting some exercise (and down time) then you will be doing the best for your body.
The other thing that struck me is that perhaps you are suffering from impatience?? It took me 16 MONTHS to lose just over 50lb. The fast weight-losses are definitely NOT what you should be aiming for - in this situation the SLOW loser is the winner!! You will be far more likely to keep the weight off once you have reached you goal, and yes - I reached my goal a LONG time ago but am still maintaining - because I did it the sensible way (and still weigh all my food and use the Nutrition Tracker :-)
Take care, sit back (not literally) and enjoy the ride!
