The big problem with losing more than 2 pounds a week is the muscle that you will also lose. Sounds like you have addressed this with the protein and exercise. If you find you are losing strength (unable to perform the same number of reps with the same weight that you did previously) then you might want to consider slowing the weight loss to preserve muscle.
