Hi Maria, can you provide more details about your diet please, maybe provide details of your average day, try to remember everything. Also, when you treat yourself, how much do you have?
We have already written a brief guide called Start Losing Weight and recommend that you first read this page.
Being very active and playing sports is excellent, so keep it up. But do bear in mind that you also need to look carefully at what you are eating and how active you are generally throughout the day. A sedentary person who does sports twice a week may be burning fewer calories than a naturally active person who plays no sport.
Ultimately healthy diet and regular exercise is everything.
