It is certainly a great start. They questions is how many calories do you eat in a day? No amount of exercise will make you loose weight unless you are consuming less than you are exerting. Eat at least 1200 calories per day so you don't convince your body that you are starving, that will slow your metabolism. Overeating is the worst culprit for weight gain. You can choose any diet, even candy bars (not that that is recommended), but don't consume too many calories. Good luck with the running! Try other light weights for your arms, legs and back, this will increase your metabolism and help you look lean.

Losing weight can be hard. If a person eats less, and exercises by doing crunches and running, they will lose some weight. The amount is dependent on how many calories they put in their body, and how many calories they burn.

crunches won't really help you lose weight, but they will tone your stomach. if you add cardio (walking, biking, running etc.) to your routine, you'll definitely lose fat and gain muscle.

How much weight you lose running varies with the terrain, your starting weight, your speed, and the amount of time spent running. On average, you burn 150 calories for every mile that you run in about 20 minutes.
