I suck at math but at the rate you’re going I would expect results within the next two or three months if you’re losing a pound or two a week…it really depends on your metabolism, genetics, stress and other factors. Hope everything works out for you 🙂

If you lose 2lbs a week – and really you wouldnt want to lose it any quicker than that – it should take about 9 weeks. Realistically, some weeks you will slip up and have a few treats so i think you could be at your goal weight in 12 weeks so 3 months

Honestly, eating that little and training that much is a great way to burn out and look miserable even if you do hit your goal weight.

What kind of training do you do?

What is your diet made up of?

What do you want to look like at your goal weight?

Sometimes it’s worth taking a longer view and getting it right rather than racing to a finish line that is only a gateway to disappointment.

ksgbee:  You should plug everything into MyFitnessPal. You can enter your goal weight, how many pounds you want to lose a week, how much you weigh now, and it will spit out how many calories you should eat each day.

SpecialSundae:  This.  Honestly, you should probably be eating a lot more than 1,200 – 1,400 calories a day if you’re working out 90 minutes, 6 days a week.  I would see a nutritionist first.

ksgbee:  that is absurd. You may lose weight but you will gain it all back (and then some) because you are slowing down your metabolism and this is a completely unsustainable plan.

I would start eating more than 1,200-1,400 calories, if I were you. You’re training too long and consuming too little. Check out IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros)…I think you would really enjoy that type of eating plan/meal prep/”dieting” strategy, plus it will give you more calories. I use this method when I prep for my bikini/figure competitions and in between off seasons…works amazing! To get started, if you interested: http://whataremymacros.com/

I agree with PP IIFYM is amazing…on a sidenote maybe try to just tone up?

 117 at 5’6″/5’7″ is considered underweight (BMI under 18.5)

I also agree that IIFYM is a great resource. It’s how I have been recomping my body (losing fat, gaining muscle).

ksgbee: I get sick when I have meat and have gluten and lactose intolerances; I feel ya, it makes nutrition a lot more difficult. I’m glad you’re seeing a nutritionist! I think if you up your calories but are eating healthfully, you’ll see steady(ish) weightloss. What is your fitness regimine like? You can probably condense it to 45-60 minutes instead of 90 and get the same, if not better results. Depending on your frame, that weight may not be healthy, which is what most bees are concerned about.
