    I'm currently a division I college athlete but am looking to shed some extra weight (preferably around 10 pounds) by summer. I've been running around 3 miles and lifting, as well as have changed my eating habits so I am eating less and healthier for the past three weeks, but I have yet to lose any weight. My legs (my target area) seem to have gotten bigger over the past few weeks. Any advice on what I should do?

    Maybe try to determine how many calories you are taking in over a week or so. You may be consuming more calories than you estimate, even though you are eating healthier.
