We can't know without knowing not only your weight and age but also your height, gender and activity level.
It's worked out by using a TDEE calculator such as this one:
You then eat 1000 calories less per day (as you already understand) less than your TDEE to lose approximately 2lbs per week. Bare in mind depending on your TDEE and other factors this rate of weight loss many not be sustainable for you and you may do better losing 1-1.5lbs per week instead.
