Weight loss is not linear. You might lose 3 pounds one week, and none for the next two, despite the math of 3500 calorie deficit = 1 pounds loss. Some of your initial loss may have been some water weight and bloating, and if you're eating better, that may be why your clothes feel a bit better, because some sodium bloat and water retention are gone. I noticed my clothes felt tight after weeks of crappy holiday eating, but merely getting back into good habits, has helped the bloat and my midsection feel smaller and pants aren't as tight, with 4 or 5 pounds dropping in a week, which I know isn't "real".
It's not a plateau until you've gone for a month or so with no change. Right now, your body's adjusting, and you may not see loss for awhile, or you might see some next week. Just stick to it.
