    Depends on how much you want to lose and how active you are. x

    That amount should give you a loss of 1lb, so sounds about right to me. Make sure you don't go too low on cals, you need energy to maintain your active lifestyle. x

    I'm also 5ft 4 I weigh 9st 11 so almost identical. I'm on 1210 calories a day which was matched to be on my fitness pal app to loose around 1lb a week. I started yesterday and did fine still managing some crisps and a kitkat! I'm not doing this long term as I have lost 13.5lb on slimming world but I need something more restrictive at the moment as was cheating! Good luck xx
