It sounds like you are getting a decent amount of cardio Joel, but the more important factor to weightloss is your diet. You can jog all day long and burn 8,000, but if you ate 3 large pizzas every day you still wouldn't lose a single pound of fat. Calories in needs to equal about 300 to 500 less than calories out. That means if your body burns 1800 calories at rest for example, you could eat 1300 calories a day and lose weight without any cardio. Add cardio on top of that defecit and you'll burn fat that much faster. The down side to that is that fast weight loss ususlly means a good percentage of the weight lost is lean muscle tissue. Just take your time with the diet and make sure you are eating whole nutrtious low-fat foods.
