I'm not sure I'd bother with all the jogging, either. Maybe you should try interval training instead: uphill sprints, jump rope, etc. I think you'd see better results from interval training than jogging.
There are a lot of fat loss articles on my blog, too, if you want to check it out.

"Healthy" diet is the key; I hear the word "Diet" and think unsustainable weight loss. You need to find a nutrition plan designed that matches body type, sex, and even blood type.
1. Keep a log of all food and exercise for the current routine for 1 week. And continue to keep this, you have to track everything and count all calories in and out in the beginning, don't worry it becomes natural after while.
2. Meet with nutritionist (possibly covered by healthcare insurance or student health centers) and find regular easy to prepare foods that are your staple or base of food. I eat turkey, chicken, yogurt (plain no added sugar but add fresh or frozen fruit), and milk (skim or 1%). All easy to make and can be pretty tasty. This may be the hardest part, but finding healthy foods you also like will help greatly, so search the grocery store high and low. Also this is tough.... give up booze for at least 6 weeks (it works but real hard). Remember all excess carbs get converted into fat for storage and you need to get to recommended daily amounts. Don't cut out all fat, just keep focused on the "good" fats in fish and nuts.
3. Set up a routine for working out, but do different exercises each time.
e.g. write down 21 different 15min exercises (stair master, pushes up, lunges, crunches, etc) and do a different group of 3-4 everyday so you never do the same workout twice. Workout plans like p90x do this for you, but with a little research you can do this yourself. I like p90x a lot, but most women will want to do the "lean" version.
4. Use a heart rate monitor to stay in the target zone when doing cardio.
5. Mix in yoga, helps with strength, flexibility, burns calories, and I think it greatly helps with mental health.
6. Take a multivitamin! I know this seems to be my mission in life, but if working out a lot you simply need a multivitamin. It is hard to impossible to get all the vitamins and minerals you need form food (should say its impossible unless you love vegetables). And most are not designed for athletes or people that work out a lot. Google "Riptrition", it is one of the best on the market now. This will help with mood, decrease colds, and provided greater energy. I personally don't endorse the "fat burners" (that enhance metabolism) although I know people that have had ok results. Definitely stay away from diet pills, basically are speed. Short cuts only set you back in the long term.
Finally, good luck, nothing worth having in life comes easy. Set up a 3 or 6 month goal and stay the course as it take time to do it the right way.

aright check it out
lets start out with your diet just because your only eating around 2000 calories dosnt mean its the right kind of food for wieght loss. i cut out the carbs out almost all 2geather exept a little in thein the morning and post wo meal other wise loose em. focus on lean meats and greens. second off hiit probably wont do u much good just possibly overtrain ya. in my experince you have to be in at least decent shape to train with it. id go with just some kinda steady cardio and keep your heart rate around 130-150 it makes for the most efficient fat loss. you also said you were doing cardio at night id switch it up to the morning and after you lift becasue then the body is runningg on empty and is forced to use fat as fuel. and just anothe tip if ur trying to gain muscle lift more than twice a week and hit individual parts harder, each at a time (legs, chest, sholders Etc.) hope ive helped
