No, not if you're a reasonable weight already. You'll be lucky to manage half that unless you do stupid things like severely undereat or "detox".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 1Kg = 2.2 lbs? That's not really sustainable long-term. A sustainable goal is 1-2 lbs per week, and when you have less to lose, 1lb a week can be a stretch. Maybe I am doing my conversions wrong though.

10:05, you are absolutely correct: 1 kg = 2.2 lbs.

I've lost 40 lbs in 20 weeks, which is 2 lbs per week, and it actually hasn't been too hard. It was hard saying no to some foods, but manageable. The important thing was that some weeks I lost only 1 lbs (or none), and some weeks lost 3-4 lbs. I don't think 2 lbs per week is unreasonable.

However, it depends how much weight you have to lose. After losing 40 lbs, I am finally at the top of a 'healthy' weight range according to my BMI. I have a feeling that as I get closer to my goal weight (another 20 lbs), it's going to get harder. But I still don't think it's unreasonable to lose 1 lb per week.

Um...because we're not wrong.

That wasn't a guess, but I'll go with:
Because it's less offensive than calling someone a brainwashed retard for thinking that the diet industry's "Lose 10 pounds in just 30 days!!" claims are grounded in reality.

It is -- if you're overweight. The OP is "not overweight".
