195 lbs to 168 lbs in 2 weeks

I’m not sure what exactly caused this, but I post my story here hoping that will be helpful. 2 weeks ago I was 195 lbs and I decided to lose weight. So I skipped one meal a day. Sometimes I skipped breakfast, sometimes lunch, or dinner. Today I hopped on the scale again, 168 lbs.
