Thanks a lot, I am in the UK so will be joining one of the British constabularies, and they do have BMI requirements as well as an annual fitness test too. As well as being something I have always wanted to do since I was a kid, the nature of the job and annual fitness tests will help keep me on the health/weight straight and narrow too

I lost 17 lbs in 5 weeks before (was not substantially overweight to begin with, 5'6, 150 and went down to 133-134)
Mind you, it was not intentional (I was working a lot) but I ate only one time per day, a huge homemade salad, with some cheese, lots of grilled chicken and other veggies, salsa instead of dressing (my preference) and bread on the side. Have no idea how many calories but would bet it was 1100-1200. I did not work out (and no way could I have with this low of calories).
My advice - it's doable, but would skip or dramatically reduce working out. Working out will only be counterproductive for this quick weight loss and make you tired and hungry all the time.
