Yes it's possible if you push yourself and tell yourself you can do it.

Yes! It's a matter of burning calories, and reducing caloric intake. Also you'll want to boost your fat burning metabolism, so eat more saturated fatty foods and eliminate wheat and sugar as much as you can. So stick to red meats, fishes and vegetables! No carbs! It'll do you good in preventing future insulin resistance and Alzheimer's too. Hope this helps! = )

It is possible but you'll need to understand that your body will "plateau" - it will get used to the workouts you do, and the calories/macros you consume and it will become tougher to lose weight.
You have to keep shocking it by mixing up your workouts, changing the intensity, alternating your calories to promote fat-burning. Drink a LOT of water. 

Don't aim for a certain amount per week, just push hard and if you don't see any weight loss one week push even harder the following.

Did anybody stop to think about asking a few questions here before reassuring her...?  What if she's got a starting weight of 120 lbs.?  What's her activity level?  BMR?  Age?  Height?  If you're going to be that aggressive in your weight loss, there ought to be some substantial medical support for it.  Have you consulted with your doctor?  

You can't hand out advice like candy here folks.  Seriously people...

Totally agree. The why-question should also be brought up more often. Why do you want to lose weight. Why do you want to lose that amount of weight. Why do you want to lose it so quickly. I'm getting more and more disturbed on this focus on weight and losing weight rather than being healthy and exercising.

I've been to the doctor, she tells me to just eat healthier, but I can't see any change so I'm gonna start working out, and no I'm not that skinny, I'm fat, and I'm tired of looking at myself and see a fat girl, I want to be like the skinny girls I'm 16, about 5'4 I think
