Is my plan for losing weight good?????

I wanna lose about 25 lbs. I'm 140 lbs and 5'2" and my goal is to be at 110 - 117 by the holidays (so I can gain it all back hahahaha XD)

I've done the diet before. It's called "the rotation diet". You eat 600 calories for 3 days, 900 for 4 days, 1200 for a week, take a week off restrictions, and the repeat as many times as you want until you lose weight. I did it sometime last year, and lost about 6 lbs in 2 weeks, tops. And the weight stayed off. I ate small meals, but of healthy foods. And those amounts of calories and did maybe a half hour of DDR with it. I lose weight, and when I got off the diet, the weight stayed off. It worked fast, too. It was thought up by a doctor so.....I only plan on doing it twice (600, 900, 1200, week off, and then repeat once) and doing 45 minutes of activity, including strength training, which I didn't do last time. And then after I lose some weight from that, I'll pick up my caloric intake to around 1500 daily.

Is this ok? There is a link to the actual diet plan

I know it's unhealthy, but I don't wanna hear about that please. I just wanna know if I'd lose. As I said, I've done it before.........

here is my normal workout:

After school/before dinner I have two options that I do:

1. This may sound silly, but my sibling and I like to pretend we're performing on stage like a band or something, and we just sing along to songs, but I do alot of running, jumping and dancing. It;s usually about an hour to an hour and 20 mins we do that, and I don't jump and stuff the whole time, I gotta catch my breath a little and it's probably around 30 - 45 minutes of that.....(it's fun so I'm more likely to do it and not get too bored or anything)

2. 45 minutes of cardio..........i usually do some on my bike and treadmill, mixing it up daily.......i may also start doing intense DDR on some days too. since I can't increase how long I do it, after two weeks of my normal speed on my, let's say my bike for an example, (30 - 36m) i'll increase my speed a little bit.

I'll do that Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun

And then on Tues, Thurs and Sat:

I'll do my "concert" routine after school, and after dinner I'll do 30 minutes of strength training with things like:

Squats (i'll be doing different types, increasing reps every week)
Walking lunges (50 on each leg, increasing by 15 each week)
Pilates (I'll be doing different pilate routines for abs)
Push-ups (various types, also increasing reps)
Planks (various moves)

Etc etc

And also in the evenings, after dinner, almost every day, my sibling and I RP (roleplay) in our bedroom, and there's alot of walking and running (mostly walking) and eventually we're gonna be fighting enemies and stuff so I'll be kicking and punching and jumping and running alot.
OH and i'm a vegetarian

My sister is telling me that the "concert" won't burn fat OR barely any calories at all
I do alot of jumping and running around and stuff when I do it. Doesn't that count for something?
