Eating has EVERYTHING to do with it and it really takes a very long time to sculpt a body unless you're able to do it as a fulltime job. Not only that, but it's not something that is easily maintained either.
I don't like using the calorie in/calorie out theory because it's a little too simplistic as it doesn't really say anything about the muscle to body fat ratio and focuses too much on weight. Unless you're doing some serious calorie cutting down to under 1200 a day, and you shouldn't, I would focus on other metrics.
Like I said though, without knowing what you look like, what you're eating, and what your goals are, it's hard to give you a better direction than eating a much more restricted diet. I wouldn't worry too much about weight because it's not a good number to go off of.
