Hi Ritu! Welcome to SP! 20lbs in 3 months is definitely do-able seeing that you can lose up to 10lbs/month in a healthy way...but from experience, it is definitely not easy. Follow SP's numbers for how much you should consume each day, paying close attention to all nutritional requirements (fat/carbs/protein as well) and you should be on your way to reaching your goals. You can lose 1lb for every 3500 calories that you consume/burn. So if you eat 2000 calories a day, aim for 1500 and in 7 days, you should lose 1 lb. Same with exercise...burn 3500 calories a week and you should burn another pound. Good luck!!
