2 pounds a week is at the top of the healthy weight loss scale. You can safely expect to lose .5 - 2 pounds a week, but unless you are very obese, 2 pounds a week probably isn't going to happen. Setting a goal to lose a certain number of pounds by a certain date is one of the worst things to do. What happens if you don't lose 2 pounds a week? Do you give up, do you regroup and set different goals?
