Weight loss in first trimester

I know weight loss in the first trimester is not uncommon, but I was just curious who else here lost weight in T1, how much, and, for those of you now further along in your pregnancies, how things went from there in terms of healthy weight gain.
So far, I have lost 5.5 lbs. Vomiting has been infrequent, but I have had a lot of nausea and certainly less appetite. It's not uncommon for me to, for example, only be able to get a few bites of dinner in me, then maybe have a toast and peanut butter before bed. I am trying to compensate by drinking a good amount of juice and milk. I haven't been too concerned, although I was a little disconcerted when I weighed myself today and saw I was 3 lbs lighter than 2 weeks ago. Now, I know my little bean only weighs about an ounce right now, but I'd still feel better if I was just maintaining my weight, rather than losing.
PS I am fairly overweight, which is probably part of the reason I am losing weight so readily...but, I still don't feel great about it.
