Not the best:
Without an exam, I can only give general information, and while I can say that you are not fat, I cannot say if you are thin (depends on how much muscle). Your amount of fat at 130lb, 55 is healthy. A significant loss (20 pounds) is UNhealthy.
Cutting calories by itself loses muscle mass, promotes a starvation response (lowr metabolism; harder to lose weight), and lowers nutrients/vitamins. ...Read more

Yes, but dangerous: 1000 calories per day and an hour of exercise can make for a dangerous situation and this plan is not sustainable. Your body is smarter than you and in a very short time on this regimen it will assume you are starving (which you will be) and slow down metabolism further. Lack of intake will also lead to your body digesting protein (muscle) making your metabolism even less efficient. ...Read more
This would be pretty: Crazy. Your body will go into starvation mode then your metabolic rate will drop then you will gain weight easily. You could make yourself extraordinarily ill with this plan. ...Read more

If I ate 1, 000 calories a day to lose weight, and now I start eating around 1, 060 calories a day will I gain weight?
Don't count calories: Counting calories is not the answer! The quality of the food you eat and physical activity is more important. You can lose weight and be fatter while gaining weight and be leaner. Limit sugar from your diet, include lean meats (grain fed, free range, no antibiotics), eliminate processed food and include health sources of fat (no trans). And exercise! ...Read more
I have been trying to lose weight for a few weeks eating 1200 calories a day and working out 3-4 time a week for 60 minutes the scale won't budge?
Working out adds mus: Sometimes starting a new workout will add muscle. Muscle weighs more than fat and the scale does not show the fat loss. Keep it up and the scale should start to show your progress. Also take some body measurements like waist hips and thighs and see if they are changing as well. ...Read more
