    If your numbers are correct then yes (that's a big assumption)

    Lose muscle - probably not if your protein intake is high enough and you keep doing weight training.

    its fine however as you lean out it won’t be. The accuracy of the deficit will depend on your actual calories consumed and your actual TDEE. In a month if you haven’t lost 6 lbs then you don’t have a deficit as large as you thought
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    Cool man! I'm trying to cut to 205lbs and this my first cut. Is my Tdee of 2900 correct? I'm 6'2 219lbs and 20 years of age. I also lift 3x a week with stronglifts for 70-80mins but I'll probably change to ppl soon. But im sedentary as I just lay down after school

    There is no way of telling. You just have to see how it all goes. In a month adjust calories up or down depending on the results at that time

    Yes. Some lean mass lost while in a deficit is almost inevitable HOWEVER if you push your self in the gym 3-4 times per week and maintain adequate protein intake (for you about 220g/day) then you should keep the loss to a minimum.
