i see a lot of overweight people lifting a lot of heavy weights and screaming like they're some big shot, but in the end they're still fat. I think it's better to lose the weight first before trying to add muscle or else you'll end up looking like tony little. If you want to get lean I would incorporate some sort of cardio workout on top of your weight lifting regiment. As others said you probably want to do more reps and lighter weight instead of heavy weight and low reps which would is what one would do to bulk up.

I work out at 24hr fitness and they offer free kickboxing and other cardio classes for free so if your gym offers that, I would try it out to see how many calories you'll burn. Or you can do it the old fashioned way and hit up the treadmill and stair climber. It's a no brainer that you should be heating a healthy diet to achieve your goals. I'm sure others will give good advice. good luck
