Yeah. Literally, forget about your weight in pounds. Forget it. No joke. FORGET it. I cannot overemphasize that.
Worrying about your weight when you are trying to lose fat is like worrying about your eyelash length when you're buying pants.
In fact, it's worse than that, because eyelash length and pants are wholly unrelated, but fat tissue and weight are related... but fat isn't the only factor.
I'm slowly losing fat these days and my weight is fluctuating. Some days it's 190, some days it's 200, most days it's somewhere in between.
You know what keeps going down, though, is my body fat percentage, measured right when I wake up every morning with my Omron handheld body fat monitor.
Furthermore, no good doctor will tell you, "You need to get your weight down to X lbs" without qualification. They might say that and then say "... without losing muscle." More likely, a good doctor will tell you where your body fat percentage needs to be. It needs to be at or under 20%, for guys. It literally doesn't matter how much you weigh if your body fat is under 20%.
And conversely, if your body fat is NOT under 20%, it doesn't matter how LITTLE you weigh. In fact, if your body fat is still high and your weight gets lower, that's actively bad, actively unhealthy. You might as well take up the stereotypical gay-boy thing and take up chain smoking and a bad meth habit, because at that point you are going purely for aesthetics and not for health, and believing otherwise is, frankly, denial.
Get a body fat monitor. Use that. Yeah, it'll be sobering, because you can't get as excited about a slow, steady loss of body fat as you can about massive drops in body weight, but if you're going to maintain that you want to be healthy, you have no alternative.
Put another way: you can lose lots of body weight with a sharp kitchen knife, a high tolerance for pain, a needle & thread and the good luck not to bleed to death, but that's not the right thing to do either.
Don't fool yourselves. The goal is not body weight. Throw that scale away. Get a body fat monitor. Use nothing else.
(Disclaimer: Yes, eventually if you get healthy enough you need to know your body weight, but ONLY to calculate your lean mass and make sure you have enough of it. But at that point, you want the weight HIGHER.)
