No one can really give you this answer. It all depends on how much fat you lose, your height, your build, and how much muscle you are going to put on.

Keep in mind while burning fat, you will most likely be building muscle. The first 5-10 lbs will come off fairly easily, but after that you will hit a threshold where you will most likely stop losing and even may be gaining.
