Lifting weights to build muscle and help with weight loss?

Question by marilyn: Lifting weights to build muscle and help with weight loss?
Well, I’m planning on starting a diet/workout routine, and I’ve heard that if you lift weights and build some muscle first, you burn calories faster and more efficiently. We have an elliptical, so I’ll be doing cardio on that, and I believe my mom has some of those little one arm weights hanging around somewhere. For someone who’s never done this sort of exercise, what weight should I start with, how should I do my workout, for how long, and how often? I’m 15 and about 40 lbs overweight for my height, and any advice is appreciated!
