Why am I not seeing weight loss when I run?


I've been doing cardio exercises like running for 30-60 minutes around 5 pm for 5 days a week for about 3 weeks now. I've also been trying to eat less, and except for the occasional Subway sandwich I think I do pretty well. Yet I see very little progress in my weight loss. I'm wondering if my body needs pre/post workout snacks (breakfast around 8, lunch around 12:30, exercise after work, dinner around 7 is the normal schedule) or if I'm just doing something wrong. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or tips to try?

    Thanks for the tips. I don't really track how far I run because I prefer to set the treadmill/elliptical for 30 minutes or until it estimates I've burned 300 calories. My average speed is about 3.7 to 4 mph, sometimes faster on the elliptical.

    I know nothing about weightlifting except some exercises I can do without equipment, like push-ups. I do have a gym membership but have never tried the machines. Do you have any tips to get me started or hubs you could point me to for more info?
