Lost 1.5 pounds this week...is this okay?

On monday, I weighed myself, and I weighed 119 pounds. Today, I weighed myself, and I now weigh 117.5 pounds. I have not changed my eating habits, nor have I changed my exercise regime. I mean, I am trying to lose weight, but still. I haven't actually DONE anything to try to lose weight. Is it normal to lose 1.5 pounds in the course of 4 days? It's kinda wierd.
Any feedback you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Note: I had no idea where else to put this question, so i put it here.

That is perfectly fine and normal your body can fluctuate of an average of 5 pounds. So 1.5 pound is nothing you probably cleaned out your system.

Yes its normal. It depends on bladdee and how much water weight you have. I can jump between 5 pounds in one day. Hope that helps you
