Actually, while GQJock is very right, there's a bit more to it. First, you need to take the whole thing seriously, and make more than a minimalistic effort. You didn't even respect the viewers here enough to have a picture, so that tells me you likely don't have much consideration for others, and likely have low esteem, and /or a poor work ethic, and don't do well at walking out of a comfort zone. That being said, and without seeing your body type, and muscle development, I want to add to what GQJock said. More importantly than caloric deficit, is metabolic activation. It could be that you need to eat more, and to workout more, to get your metabolism up. As I move towards a contest, I bring my calories UP, rather than down, and workout at a higher intensity. Because you'vre made such a poor effort (no picture, no height, no weight) in the way you asked your question, it's hard to give more qualified advice. To be successful, you'll need to learn to walk outside of your comfort zone (whatever it is..pictures, or calories), and have attention to detail.
Without knowing your caloric intake, what you look like, it's nearly impossible to advise you. If you're eating 1500 calories a day, and should be eating 2500, of course, your body will retain fat as part of its protectionism mechanism (the famine response). I.e., if you're 5'10", and 155, you'd need to be eating more, rather than less, to get lean. It's a bit more complicated than that: metabolic activation, setpoint manipulation and so on, but, it's not worth my time to instruct you on that when you put forth such a poor effort.
