Well, you're seeing muscles appear. That generally means you've done one of three things:
1. Lost fat, resulting in your muscles being more prominent.
2. Gained muscle, resulting in your fat being less noticeable.
3. Both of the above.

So, it sounds like it's working. Failing that, the only thing you could possibly say is that you're fourteen and some of that weight will come off as you get older - you'll grow upwards, most likely.

Just remember that muscle isn't weightless. I'm not sure how it works for most people, but being 14 and I'm assuming a girl, I wouldn't be surprised if you DID grow out of it but I don't think it'd be growing upwards (I don't know many girls that grew in height passed 7th or 8th grade).

Is it really your weight you're upset with, or is it how you look at that weight? Keep in mind that a lot of people feel they need to lose weight when they're at a healthy weight, what they really want is to tone and get rid of some fat. If you feel like you just CAN'T lose any, and that it's not muscle, I'd say go to a doctor because it seems like you are eating right and exercising. However, I don't know exactly what your diet is so I'm just guessing.
