good luck on your goals!!!
i would say try out hiit (high intensity interval training). i think it is the best way to lose weight and get in shape. i lost about 50 pounds doing hiit, lifting weights, and the south beach diet. i am also a firm believer in pullups, dips, and squats. stop eating crap foods and just try to do some kind of excercise every day, you'll be amazed at the results.
