    I'm 5'5" and weigh 115 lbs. I jog regularly, but the fat on my waist, hip and thigh just won't go away. I know that a sufficient amount of cardio is needed to burn fat. Is there any thing I can do on top of cardio to get rid of that fat? Thanks.

    Start lifting

    Start lifting. It might sound weird, but bench pressing and bicep curls are just as effective as lunges and calf raises when it comes to losing body fat on your hips and waist etc etc, since there's no such thing as spot reducing unless you go under the knife. That's not to say you shouldn't do those lunges and what not, since they'll help build muscle, and more muscle = better definition.

    I'd say to really take stock of what you are eating too. It's amazing how much calories can creep up on you. :p I believe that 80% of your results are dependent upon nutrition too. You can exercise till the cows come home but if you are still consuming too many calories/not enough protein etc. you will not get the results you are looking for.

    Good luck.

    there is no such thing as spot reduction. if you want to lose fat off your legs and hips, you have to reduce your total body fat percentage.
