Healthy, sustainable weight loss is most often defined as about 1% of your body weight. If you weighed 200-300 pounds, then yes, 2-3 pounds a week would be a good rate. At less than 150, however, I would only expect to healthfully lose .5-1.5 per week. That's not saying you can't (or won't) lose more than that some weeks, but I wouldn't expect it consistently
