|I am assuming you met whining, not winning?
She continues to do it because, IT WORKS!!! Surprise, when she whines, you pick her up.
Two things can help. One is to only offer cuddles and holding WHEN she is quiet. If she is whining, ignore and do something else, maybe even leave the room, but do not give in and pick her up and cuddle.
And, distract her from whining by offering a favorite toy or a walk or something that she has to do without whining.
I consider the ignoring her whines most important... that will show her that it doesn't gain anything, in fact, IF you leave the room, the opposite effect will happen.
Interrupting the whining will lessen its occurance over time. If she is kept busy she won't have time to whine.
