Hi there. Sorry if this has been discussed before. I'm 19 and the only exercise equipment in the house is a recumbent bike. Like others i'm embarrassed to go to a gym and stuff. I ride for 30 minutes twice a day and feel it start to kick my you-know-what after 10 minutes. I do level 2-3 at 13-14MPH. I'm 194 pounds female. If i do this 4 times a while on a 1500 calorie diet will i lose 3-4 lbs a week? I'm just worried I'm doing all this work for nothing because a recumbent bike I heard won't do anything for weightloss just a few calories.
