Well, the next five months (including August) are 153 days which is about 21.9 weeks. 21.9 x 2 = about 44 pounds. So if you lose 50 I doubt that 6 extra pounds will matter. Actually, I am trying to think of a nice way to say your friend is full of shit. Sadly, I can't think of one.
That said as you get smaller you will lose less anyway, at least that has been my experience. Not that that changes the facts about your friend.
Edit: I should add that obviously this is based on starting size. Obviously if someone is 120 they should not lose 50 pounds in 5 months (or at all) but if you have a lot to lose chances are you will lose weight quickly at first.
