Eventually your entire body will have less fat and the love handles will disappear.
Ultimately, if you gain weight, it means you take in more calories than your burn off. It could be that what you consider exercise is not be rigorous enough to burn fat (sweating doesn't mean you are burning fat) or that your workouts are too short to burn fat (20 minute minimum on the treadmill, for example), or maybe you eat/drink too much of the wrong things at the wrong times...etc.

If you're on a treadmill, walking/jogging at about 3 mph, it will take 40-60 minutes. The less body fat you have, the harder it is to lose it. I'm 140 lbs, and it takes me roughly twenty minutes to walk a mile on a treadmill (with high incline) at 3.2 mph, and for every mile I walk, I burn 100 calories. So it takes me twice as long to burn 200. Taking into account your…
