Obsessing over amount lost in a week, or and ideal weight goal can drive you nuts. I focus on the goals that matter like consistent healthy eating, and tracking other measurements. Especially for woman as we go through our cycle our body weight/water weight can fluctuate. But focusing on how you feel and how much more you can do and your energy level are great ways that your body gives you feedback that you are doing a good job!
Don't weight yourself more than once a week and keep consistent with the day of the week and time of day. Also track your clothing size, and inches on your waist, chest, thighs, hips, and arms.

Meal planning is always a problem for me, and trying to plan healthy meals makes me even more food obsessed-what ot buy what to make etc. So for now I am relying on Lean Cuisine dinners. I'm freed up, don't have to plan as much and am no longer obsessed with meals, what to eat etc.
