Sorry you didn't get any immediate replies. I have been busy with work and life and just got back on today. I would suggest you find a weight lifting routine. Check out Bodybuilding.com (free site). Their forum has some advice for newbies. I would tell you to lift heavy (6 repetitions to failure for 3-4 sets). If you do weights and cardio on the same day do the weights first. Weight training will help you retain muscle. Cardio can burn more calories but you will burn off muscle along with the fat. Good luck on your journey.
