Personally (and I'm 57) I've found the Nutrition Tracker to be the absolute, number one thing. Losing weight is more what we eat, than what we do. So it's important to stay within our calorie ranges, and fill the day with healthy, nutritious food. That said, cardio and strength training are also important. But you just cannot out-exercise a bad diet.
The thing about exercise is, it will get that metabolism going again. Takes a little time, but it WILL get going. I had spent years not exercising at all and it seemed my metabolism was so slow, it was comatose. And the strength training is important, because we start losing muscle every year, if we don't actively work at it. Won't "bulk" you up, I don't know why women always worry about bulking up. I've been at it for a while now, and I don't look "manly" or anything.
