Hi there!
Best way to tone your legs is walking. Lifting for your legs will increase your problem.
Losing weight takes a lifetime commitment. I just started my journey last week.
Eliminate everything white, flour, rice, pasta, baked potatoes etc.
No soda, no candy or cake or ice team.
Eat meat, veggies & fruit. You can do it!

Here is the answer to this question.
In order to lose weight, you have to subtract calories.  Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week, so in order to lose 1 lb/week, you'd have to drop 500 calories from your BMR each day (1 lb is equal to 3500 calories, so 500 calories X 7 days = 3500 calories or 1 lb).  OR you can drop 250 calories from your diet and increase exercise to use an additional 250 calories.

Changing up calorie counts and exercises will help prevent plateau.
