How many calories and Carbs should a 17 year old eat in a day to loose weight?

I'm 5'9, and weigh 229 lbs. For the past month now, I have diligently gotten up in the morning, and exercised by doing cardio and lifting weights. I also improved my eating habits, eating much healthier than I ever have in my life. The problem is, I don't seem to be loosing any weight! I'm still borderline 229/230. I don't get it. Do I need to do MORE cardio? I run for 30 mins, increasing the speed and incline as I go alone, and when I'm done, I'm soaked in my own sweat. My endurance has gone up tremendously, as well as my strength in lifting. I can now lift about 35 more ibs in everything I'm doing. So I know I'm improving. So What should I do? Should I start counting more my calories and carbs? Or should I just do more cardio?
