How to lose a few pounds?

I am 5"7 and weigh 118 pounds. I know this is not overweight, and is in fact normal, but I want to lose a few pounds. My arms look chubby, my face looks like it still has baby fat, and I don't like my body frankly. I jog for thirty minutes, run for ten, and do exercises for another thirty (plus a sport for another thirty) every other day. And I haven't lost any weight. I don't eat many sugar foods (I will have them every now and then, but just as an occasional treat) and tried to do a diet (certain amount of calories each day) but nothing works. I am not trying to obtain a crazy ideal, just trying to lose a few pounds. Any suggestions? : ) (please do not comment stating I don't need to lose any weight. I know I am healthy, I just want to feel a little better about myself ^^)

Sounds like you dont need to lose weight but need to tone up the weight you do have. Flabby muscle is still flabby muscle. You arent going to make it go away by eating.... or not eating. Work out a bit and tone up what you have.

You definitely don't need to lose any weight, what you do need to look into is exercises that will tone your body, rather than focusing on weight loss - which isn't going to help you in the long run. You can get some sample workout ideas thought the following...
