What are your tips for losing weight? I currently work out 5-7 days a week and do cardio (run at least a mile or elliptical or stationary bike) in that workout and weight-lift 3-4 days a week and do 150 situps a day...I'm not losing the weight I want...before you go there, I eat a reduced calorie diet 1300-1500 calories a day. Should I start walking in addition to my workouts? How many steps should I shoot for a day? Also, any tips please :) by the way I'm 5'6 128lbs

Um, you don't really need to lose weight. You're right in the healthy BMI range. You sound like an Olympian to me.
Do you want to tone your body? Your body does need to rest to rebuild muscle.
A good book for you may be 'The New Rules of Lifting' by Lou Schuler and Alwyn Cosgrove to give you some perspective on maybe what you think you're doing wrong.
Personally, I think you're working out TOO much if you want to lose weight.
Interval training may work for you (hard for a minute or two, moderate for a minute or two, repeat).0
