I'm 5'4 weighing in at 260lbs. My main goal is to be 160lbs or somewhere in that area. Been curious about what type of exercises that can give me the best results in a amount of like 5 or 6 months as I am trying to lose 20lbs per month if possible. Also what diets should i consider getting on

If you haven't exercised in a long time, I suggest you start with moderate , less intense workouts. The key is to strengthen your heart and get the weight off and you find your breathing gets better. Start with movement flow and warm up. Walking for as long as you can. Follow with moderate weight program for full body.

Ravon,

I will give you the skinny to the best workouts for weight loss. There are so many ways to achieve weight loss and getting back into shape but Sheila brings a good point. Steady. As a former guy who was very overweight I wanted the shortcuts. Who doesn't? A priority list could look like this. 
1) Nutrition- comes first. What do you eat versus what can you eat less of slowly and what can you immediately replace while still enjoying yourself.

And at the bottom comes fitness. If you have not exercised I would suggest walking (not running as this forces excess weight on your joints that aren't ready for the magnitude they're receiving).

Keep it simple and try circuit interval workouts and strength building workouts. Some favorites of mine for beginners would be "modified push-ups" , "birddogs" bodysquat to chair, jumping jacks, windmills, knee raise marching and there are more low impact exercises out on Skimble. If you're interested I can provide some more Bodyweight exercises but first and foremost you'll want to look at what you eat. 

Keep At It!

Cardio is a good way to start. But try the easier ones first before going to the more advanced exercises. Then keep doing it consistently until it becomes your habit.  If the same exercises are already easy for you, move to another set of workout routines.
