Yes it's possible as long as you stick to it everyday.
I'm similar to you, my calorie limit is 1,100 & I also burn off 500 cals at the gym.
My goal is 27th Sept for a holiday.
Good luck!

What do u mean when u say " 3 stone"? What does the word "stone" mean since I'm new to this type of lingo?

14lbs in a stone. 3 stone = 42lb

We say stones when referring to weight in the UK more than we say lbs.

I need to lose 3 stones. I'm 33 5'8 and 239. How many calories should I take in and how much should I be burning at the gym? Please and Thank you ;)

I follow a low fat diet of 1,300 calories. I have to subtract 200 calories of that for my milk allowance which leaves me 1, 100. II have 2 pieces of fruit daily which is 100 calories = 1,000 calories left for food.
There's lots of low calorie food to make up 1,000 calories & I'm always full at the end of each day.
I go to the gym 5 times a week & burn off 500 calories which adds my total to 1, 500 worth of calories. I never use these spare calories as I'd like a 3lb weight loss every week.
This calorie allowance was given to me by the practice nurse at my Dr's surgery

With your height & weight it's showing 2239 cals per day for a 1lb weight loss per week
For a 2lb weight loss subtract 500 calories = 1,739

You run the risk of your body eating its precious muscle for enery if you eat too far below you calorie target, especially if youre eating under 1200 calories. The body needs at least that just to breath, pump blood, etc.

To lose weigh you have to burn off more calories than you eat. By only burning off half you will just maintain your weigh
