Cantilever off of deck

Hi everyone, I am wanting to put a cantilevered extension off of my deck that I have, small extension. Please see the attached file, I could try to explain myself, but they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Let me know what you all think.

Need to be using 6 X 6's instead of 4 X 4's, It's not legal to just attach to outsides of the post
With 2 X 6 joist it better be one small deck, seems way under sized to me.
Use the correct sized joist and you would not need that diagonal if it does not extend out to far.

Thanks for the reply, the deck will only extend 4 feet off the front. and it will span 20 feet left to right as you are looking at the front of the deck.

Thanks once again.
