Figure about one percent of your body weight per week until you're within about 30 or 40 lbs of your goal, at which point it should be about half a percent. So if you weigh 150, about 1.5 lbs per week unless you are over about 5'4" tall in which case you would be looking more like .75lbs per week.
Eta if you only have 16 lbs to lose, just under half a pound a week is entirely in line with where you should be.
