One thing to be aware of at your age is not only maintaining muscle mass but also bone density.

Lift heavy, concentrate on compound exercises (bench press, squat, barbell row, etc.) and at least some of your aerobic work needs to be weight bearing. Until some of the weight is off, stick to walking.
Check out ExRx for exercises.
