In brief: That amount not safe

A good rule is to lose 1-2 pounds/week.
500-1000 calorie deficit/day below your required amount will give those losses. At that pace, you would lose 26-52 lbs. In 6 months. It's easier to lose weight early on and the pace of loss often slows down. A combo of cardio and weight training should give you best results. 5-6 days/week of exercise is ideal. Bariatric surgery can be another option.
