I'm obese and 5'5 and weigh 241. If I eat 1000 calories a day how much weight will I lose? Is this safe? ( I will not be doing this long term)

Weight loss speed depends on your general medical health (do you have any medical issues), the amount of exercise you do, & what you eat (ie, Stay away from carbs & eat plenty of veggies).

In brief: See your physician

This is safe if the food choices are balanced and sensible but the long term solution with these numbers may well be bariatric surgery.
