Week 1 weight loss isn't something that is going to set you up for success nor failure; it's good that you lost 6 lbs in your first week, but it's unlikely you'll maintain that rate. Likewise, people who lose nothing their first week aren't necessarily doing anything wrong, either!
As long as you avoid crazy fad and crash diets, aim to eat healthy and enough to support your activity level, and include regular exercise, a calorie-restricted diet will eventually produce results. :)
Just remember that it can take as much as 6-8 weeks for healthy lifestyle changes to translate to the scale. That's normal, and fine!
