Question: I did 20 minutes of a cardio program and 20 minutes of a fatburn program on my elliptical machine, but it's getting to be too much everyday, boring too. Plus my fan broke, I prefer cool air on me when I work out.

I think it's best to not call your eating habits a "diet", but better as a lifestyle change. If you do little to no exercise, but eat healthy such as veggies, fruit, lean meats, fiberous carbs, etc. then, yes, you should expect some results such as weight loss. HOWEVER, it'll be a slow progress and adjustment. I can definitely understand how it feels to get bored of something after doing the same routine every day for an hour--even every other day may seem like a drag. I think that just means it's time for you to switch up your routine with something else. I know it's getting cold outside, so perhaps you can sign up at a gym and take advantage of everything they offer. Just don't continue going to the same machine(s) every time you go. Make a plan to try something new or do a circuit (5 minutes on this machine, then quickly 5 minutes on that machine, etc.). You can also do this at home or ask a friend to join you! Good luck!

You are going to hate hearing this, but eating healthily alone doesn't attribute to losing weight. Yes you will lose some weight but the weight is easily gained back. While it is a great thing to eat healthily, it must be coupled with exercise if you want any form of permanent results. Same thing with exercise alone, because if you eat a lot of fatty foods but exercise at the same time, you won't see results in that method either. I hate to sound monotonous but the saying is true: no pain, no gain.

wiggle while you watch for 40 minutes fidgeters burn up to 350 more calories a day than couch potatoes

if your lifestyle or career includes a lot of socializing out at dinners or drinks start scheduling workout dates with friends co workers or even clients

I don't think you're eating enough. You might want to add a third small meal in there, or add another serving of fruit or vegetables to your almond snack. Nobody can tell you definitively what results you'll get. Obviously you're going to put on muscle. I wouldnt' be surprised if the number on the scale went up to 160 or so. I don't know how much you'll be lifting and how. I'm assuming you'll be on an upright bike, not recumbent. If you're keeping a good leve of resistance, I imagine your hams/quads/glutes/calves will be mad. I do think you should go for an hour on the bike, though. Make sure to add sprints and hills into your workout. Flat roads only do so much for you. I think you'll see a pretty nice transformation. I'm just worried about your eating. Don't be afraid to add a little something in there.
