I've lost 20lbs in three months

I was feeling pretty good about it until my brother said, "That's ALL?! In three months of working out, lifting weights, and dieting, you have only lost twenty pounds?!" He then went on to tell me how he could lose 5 to 10lbs a week "without even trying", just by eating a bit better. Then he went on to lecture me and tell me that I must be lying about my diet or workouts. (i'm not) I feel like shit now. Then he said how "people on those weight loss TV shows lose triple that, you must be doing something wrong!" I had actually been feeling great, because until now, I haven't been motivated enough to get off my lazy ass to work out and eat better. I've been trying for years to lose weight, and now that I have been successful, I get a lecture that it's not enough. I go to the gym 4 or 5 days a week, do 30 - 45 mins cardio and about an hour of lifting. Is 20lbs in three months too little? Should I be doing more? I'm not willing to starve myself and spend 2 hours a day at the gym. I thought it was better to lose it slow and steady and keep it off. I still have about 50lbs to go.
