In other words: how to prevent losing muscle while burning fat exercises?
Work out.

Everyone I've known who was overweight and started to lift weights actually *lost* weight at first - even though they were gaining muscle, the increased activity and caloric demand made them lose fat weight faster than they put the muscle on.

Unfortunately, the less fat you have, the more difficult it is to get your body to give up any more, so that only works for so long before your fat losses drop below your msucle gains, and your weight starts going back up.

When realistically what could have happened was that they lost fat and gained muscle and lost no weight.

The best advice i can give is dont worry about your weight and worry more about the look that you want for yourself.
I couldn't disagree with this more.

Monitoring your weight, hydration level, and bodyfat is essencial to finding the perfect diet/exorsise for you.

for most people I help with this the first thing I suggest is that you log EVERYTHING. your cardio, you're caloric intake, protein, carbs, all of it. At the end of the month review it and find where you were doing the best and make sure you keep raising the intensity of your cardio.

A weighted vest is a fantastic investment as you continue.
