Height and weight: Please go online and check your Body Mass Index (BMI). You are currently at 28 which is a bit high. Keep an eye on your diet and a consult with a trainer would not hurt.

No way to predict: That varies a great deal from one person to another. It is much more difficult for some people to lose weight than it is for others. Losing 40-50 lbs is a very difficult thing to do. It requires a great deal of dedication and consistency. It would be more realistic to set a goal of losing 10 lbs and see how long that takes. It will probably take longer with each 10 lbs that you lose.
