a pound a day

Is it safe to lose a pound a day? Im 23 and currently weigh 214. , I weighed 228 last month. My "happy weight" was 190 last summer. Im 5'9 so I looked slim. But now I cant fit in any of my clothes, have trouble standing for long periods of time and always need my legs elevated to be comfortable. I figured if I lose a pound a day id lose weight quicker. Is it possible? Is it safe?
