i think you should just worry about getting active and staying active.

Are you active at all? Because if you're not, then just getting active again you'll lose some weight. But at your size, I'd highly recommend losing at least some weight before working on getting your muscle. I'm not saying don't use weights, but don't focus only on weights, focus mainly on cardio and modify your diet to cut down on calories.

I'm 6' 3" and I'm around 255 lbs. and I'm trying to lose weight and gain muscle, but I had some muscle before I started, it sounds like you're starting working out for the first time (or the first time in a long time)

Good luck.

QFT. Drop some weight from doing cardio and a little bit of weights. If you're that big you've probably got a lot of muscle, you just need to drop some weight to show it.

What does "QFT" mean? I wish I knew if I had a lot of muscle but sadly I can only go off what people tell me (I have a body image problem called Muscle Dysmorphia. PM me if you wanna learn more, ignore me if you don't ).

ok first 3 things to know
1) Fat CAN NOT become muscle
2) muscle weighs more then fat
3) only muscles can burn fat.

That being said if you want to lose overall body weight but not sacrfice fat. Start eating healthy. Cut back of sugars and the bad stuff. Start weight training. The more efficent you make your muscles the faster and more efficently they will burn fat. Then just add a good cardio program. I suggest an ellipitical machine to avoid knee problems and avoid the SCALE.. the scale is evil. It just measures overall body weight not your body fat or muscle mass. Go by how you feel how your clothing fits and such. If you go to a regular gym, there should be a personal trainer there who can probably explain to you how to check your body fat precentage. go by that.. not a scale.. those things are evil.
