I don't understand what your diet plan is....

First off I would stop all the processed foods, Dunkin donuts and fried apple pie for breakfast is not a good way to start the day.

Eat real foods, healthy vegetables, no batter covered deep fried foods.

Go healthy and the weight loss will follow.

good luck

Its probably a plateau.
If your diet has been working fine up till now, then your body has become accustomed to the system and it needs a little push.
I recommend doubling your water uptake for a week. It will stop your body from retaining fluid and help to flush your stomach. You can also try a multivitamin or just vitamin c, both will remind your body that it's not starving to death.
Unless you are actually starving yourself, if that's the case, eat a big bowl of porridge (high fiber, low GI, high protein).
The other explanation is that your diet just isn't good enough.Question try counting calories. eat half or even 1/3 of your calculated recommended daily intake. (half is healthier, but i do 1/3 coz i'm impatient).
But be persistent. Dieting, to me, is about applying constant dietary pressure to your system over extended periods of time. Time and pressure. It can literally move mountains.

Not likely a plateau that quickly. Plateaus happen after being on a low calorie diet for awhile and losing weight, not after 2 weeks.

First, get rid of the candy, ice cream, pie and junk food. Just do it. Eat more balanced meals. A protein, a starch, and 1-2 veggies with lunch and dinner. You need veggies for their nutritional value - learn how to cook and enjoy them. Veggies also fill you up without adding lots of calories. Your carbs should come from the healthy variety - fruits, veggies, the occasional bread/pasta.... Don't over do it on fruits though b/c they do contain natural sugars. The more carbs you eat, the more you will crave. If you try to limit them, you will be able to cut your calories without feeling too hungry - as long as you eat your veggies.
Watch your portion sizes - invest in a kitchen scale and weigh your servings so that you are 100% honest about the amount you are eating.
Get moving. Exercise or at least get off the couch!
Don't give up b/c that is the only time you will fail.

From my recollection, I did not lose any weight my second week. I did lose a significant amount of weight after the first week, which was mostly water weight. My thought was that I had lost so much my first week that it took my body a bit to adjust. If you eat healthy and increase your exercise, it WILL come off. It may not be as fast as you would like, but it is inevitable that you will continue to lose if you stick with a healthy eating/exercise program. Be patient. The weeks are going to pass anyway.

As soon as I changed my diet, the weight dropped off. I agree with NCOLE, drop these foods that contain no nutrition or spike your insulin - potatoes, cereals, bananas, breads/bagels, diet/sugar free anything (0 calories but spike your insulin), granola bars (which are essentially candy bars). Eat proteins, good fats, whole foods/fresh veggies, low sugar fruit. Your body is messed up from eating junk, processed foods and it will hold onto weight until you fix this. Once you lose, you can introduce some of the above foods but in moderation.
