One of the fringe benefits of eating healthier is that it also often leads to a lower sodium (salt) intake, and less retained water.
And less retained water can lead to big drops in the scale.
But this is largely a one-off effect (not that this is a bad thing - less sodium is healthy in its own right), but I wouldn't read too much into a single large drop in the scale.
What you are doing sounds about right, and shouldn't be cause for having to re-adjust your calories at this stage.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
