Strenght training is great for lots of reason. First yes muscles burns more calories than fat, second it will help tighten and tone your muscles so you look leaner and in better shape, second it will help tighten and tone your skin as you lose weight. Not to mention how the endorphins it releases will help you feel less hungry and tired all the time. There are some videos available but I have never used them because I go to the gym but I know they are out there. Usually you only need a few free weights and some resistance bands. For a short time I did Denise Austins Pilates for everybody video and that had some resistance band as well as core strengthening and I saw great results using that. I hope you find something that works for you!
