You are going in the right direction!
If you're tracking all the nutrition you take in, drinking your 64 ounces of water a day (unless prohibited by physician), and staying within your caloric range - it will happen!
Because I am lazy, I had to adjust the SP expectation that I would work out X number of times a week - and when I changed those figures - the amount of calories I was given went down a little bit.
That's okay because I don't need the extra nutrition if I'm not exercising that specified amount and burning the expected number of calories.
On average, I eat about 1375 calories a day (my current SP range is 1200-1550). I total my calories for the week and divide by 7 to make sure I'm staying in that range.
The scale is great for reflecting your relationship to gravity - not so great in pointing out all the awesome non-scale victories (NSV's) like your body measurements going down, your clothes not being so tight, having more energy, etc.
It can be frustrating but try your best to stay out of your own way and keep your eye on the prize of becoming the healthiest you can be. You can do it!

Don't wait until you've reached your goal to be proud of yourself. Be proud of every step you take toward reaching that goal.
A few "bad" days can't ruin your plan... only giving up can do that. Just keep going and you will get there.
