It depends on how serious and sincere you are towards the goal. It also depends on your existing health condition (diseases, medications etc) which affect your ability to follow any fitness plan and which impact metabolism and heart rate. To lose weight, get toned and sustain results, one needs to follow a well- balanced program of exercise and diet/nutrition.* More regular one is, the faster the progression. Genetics and body structure too can have an impact. So does lifestyle. Somebody with an overall active lifestyle will generally see better results vis a vis someone with a sedentary one. One should not go by baseless claims and set unrealistic goals. Just losing weight and flab is not enough. You need to keep it away for good. An assessment of all these factors will give a truer picture and help quantify the answer.
*Toning cannot be achieved by dieting alone. This fact is borne out by people who lose weight rapidly without any complimentary physical program and are left with sagging skin. Constant dieting only slows down the metabolism making weight loss more difficult.
