How quickly can I realistically loose 15lbs if I exercise everyday for half an hour?

I’m a somewhat active 26 year old who has never had problems with her weight. I still fit in the shorts I wore in 7th grade and live a pretty active life style. I happily live in a community where it is easier to walk and bike than drive, I regularly go swimming and am learning to surf. I usually eat healthy fresh food.

I spent the last month and a half interning in an impoverished community. The only local eats are the usual fast food crap, subway, burger king, checkers. I sometimes bring my lunch, but about 2-3 times a week I didn’t. So I ate out at the crap food (usually subway) with the other interns. I know this sounds dumb, but I don’t usually gain weight, so I didn’t really think about it. Needless to say, I gained about 15lbs. I’m very unhappy as I realize it is easy to gain weight but not so easy to loose it.

I have started doing cardio at the gym for half an hour everyday in addition to my usual routine and have cut out the junk food. (If I don’t bring lunch, I don’t eat. This has motivated me to start packing everyday.) Otherwise I’m not changing my eating habits except perhaps by forgoing the occasional icecream. How quickly can I realistically lose the 15lbs? I’d like to be back to my normal weight before I go back to graduate school in the fall as I will probably not be able to make it to the gym everyday then.

    Typically speaking, healthy weight loss is about 1-3 pounds a week, depending on how much cardio you do, how much sleep you get, how strictly you keep to your diet, etc. So basically about 5 weeks, give or take.
    Sometimes though it can take over 12 weeks to see results :( It depends on your body type. Change up your workout regimen to see faster results.
