Is 20 minutes on a stationary bike, every day, enough to lose 2-3lbs a week?


I am doing 20 minutes every day on my stationary bike, burning a little over 200 calories. I am also eating better and not eating past 1,500 calories. My goal is to lose 2-3lbs a week and over all drop 30-40 pounds by August. I am getting married in November and I want to slim down, back to the size I was 2 years ago. I gained 35-40lbs when I had to quit my job. I was in bed for months with sever anxiety and neck pain. I barley moved. To top that, I started eating meat again. I was a vegetarian for years. So do you think I will see good results doing 20 minutes a day?
