Do it! Build muscle and challenge yourself, and you'll not only be stronger, but you'll lose weight if you're also changing how you eat and doing some walking or interval training here and there. Crossfit is one good source of information, and doing bodyweight exercises is great too!

When I am at work, I take strength training breaks twice a day.
In the bathroom, I do 2 reps of wall push-ups, 2 reps of wall rocking (chair rocking without the chair), wall squats, standing adduction and standing abduction, just to name a few. If anything can be done standing. Take 5-10 minutes of you down time or break time to add a little strength training.104
