Probably no more than 4-5 pounds. You can safely lose 2% of your body weight from exercise, so any more than that is likely weight loss or extreme dehydration.

@NaijaPuertoDorian:  Oh oh, sorry I didn’t read your first post thorougly. You’re right, that seems like a lot! I think you could have lost 3-4 pounds though if you’ve made drastic changes and have a fair amount of weight to lose. They always say to lose 1-2 pounds/week (which is considered slow weight loss) to maintain, so I assume that means you can lose more than that. As long as you aren’t starving yourself or doing anything harmful, I’d keep it up! The only downside is that if you did made really drastic changes to your lifestyle, it may be hard to keep it up.

3500 calories = a pound. You just need that deficit to lose a pound. You don’t have to burn all of those calories through exercise. If you’re limiting your calories, then you can create a deficit that way as well. Also, weight loss isn’t linear. People with a lot of weight to lose tend to lose it more quickly at the beginning then it becomes harder. Lastly, unless you’re strength training, you’ll be losing both fat and muscle while you lose weight.
