You're doing great. That's a great pace to lose weight.
Some of that is probably due to gain in muscle weight.
Counting all exercised calories with myfitnesspal can have you over-calculating the burn, which can throw off your totals.
Don't worry too much about tracking your weight. Use it as a general guide. Generally speaking, your trend is that of consistent weight loss. If that's your goal, consider it a success and keep going. The slower you lose, the greater the chance you'll keep it off.
What would be a good shopping list that why I know what to get and that why I'll get the right nutrients that I need
Try making it at least to the 1200 calories or over. Your muscles will use the calories to make you strong and they will burn the fat!
