No, it really, honestly isn't do-able. Think about weight loss in percentages; you can't safely lose more than about 1% of your body weight per week, max. That's why people always talk about 2 pounds as a safe amount, because people starting here tend to weigh around 200. There's something about the number 200 that makes people (well, women) decide to get it in gear and do something about their weight.
You're talking about losing 16 pounds in 6 weeks. That's more than one and a half times the safe amount.
Another way to think about it is to ask yourself how long it took to GAIN the extra weight. I bet it was a whole lot longer than a month and a half! You can lose weight somewhat faster than you gained it, but not 10 or 20 times faster! And if you're not so obese that your health is at risk, it's not unreasonable to allow yourelf almost as much time to lose as you did to gain. If you don't rush it, losing all but the last 10 can be almost as easy as gaining it was. (That's another thing-- no matter what you do, the last 10 pounds will be *extremely* slow, because your body doesn't think you need to lose them.)
