Weight: Yes you can lose wright. There are many options on the web. My preference is "NuVal" which lists the good, not so good, and not good at all.

Is having a guilty conscious about food a healthy way to lose weight?

Dr. Pamela Pappas

No: A guilty conscience about food is not a healthy way to lose weight. Healthy food nourishes your body and keeps it running well. Emotional problems can sometimes confuse and complicate the process of eating, though. For instance, some with binge eating disorder suffer guilt about food. See your physician if you're concerned about your weight or your feelings about food.

Dr. Quang Nguyen
Specializes in Endocrinology
Yes: The answer depends on your baseline weight but in general a pace of 0.5-2 lbs/week is acceptable and achievable. The most important thing is how you are doing this. Make sure you stick to a program that you know you can maintain lifelong instead of falling for the fad diets/regimen. Good luck to you.
