With only 6 lbs to lose, you're looking at AT MOST about 1/4 to 1/2 a lb a week. Two weeks may actually be too aggressive! Your margin for error is lower, so accurate tracking is important. Increasing the calorie deficit may actually sabotage your efforts.
It may also be worth your time to reassess your goal; weight is less useful the closer you get to maintenance, because what looks like a good number on paper may not actually be where your body wants and needs to be. 6 lbs is still within the normal range of healthy fluctuations from week to week, and could be very difficult for you to lose.
Have you had your body fat percentage checked? That may be a better measure of progress for you at this point.
