Default losing more than 2 pounds per week.... I thought this wasn't healthy?

I see posts here all the time showing people losing 100 pounds in less than a year, or in general, losing weight at a greater than 2 pound per week rate. Heck, I've lost 7.1 pounds in 9 days (but i did just start my journey feb 1).

Conventional wisdom always says that more than 2 pounds a week isn't healthy and isn't done, so how is it that many people are doing it? Not complaining at all, but, just don't want to mess myself up along the way. I would never eat too few calories or exercise too much in an effort to lose more than 2 pounds per week, but, if I do lose more, I'm not gonna complain!!

(ps-0.7 pounds away from 199.9!!!)
