In brief: Not safe

Unfortunately any rapid weight loss is probably a bad idea - eating healthy, limiting calories and exercise is the way to go.
Not easy - if it was we would all be skinny.

In brief: Moderate to slow

rate of loss is best.
Eat healthfully. Try to eat at least 5 servings of vegetables & 4 of fruit per day. Increase nutritional fiber. Avoid refined sugar & junk carbohydrates. Avoid alcohol, sweetened juices, soda & caffeinated beverages. Aim for 7.5 to 8 hrs of sleep / night. Hydrate w at least 64 oz of water / day. Calories burned must > calories consumed. Do both cardio & weight training.

Oh yes, start working on your weight starting today , slow and steady last longer . Salud y buen provecho!
