Hi there

It will, though it may not be the best form of exercise for that purpose. Ideally for toning, you want to be doing dynamic exercise, either cardio or weight training. Weight training especially beneficial and by doing weight training, you increase your muscle mass, and that means that you body's metabolic rate is lifted. So the appearance of being toned as well as the actual weight loss that you require are both the result of a ombination of weight training and cardio training.

So just keep it up, give it a few months to work - remember, you have to be consistent, one month of training, one month resting is not really that effective, it should be a steady training period over many months to really see great results.

Good luck
