Heather, toning is a bogus word to make women more attracted to strength training As I said, strength training is mostly what I do because it builds muscles which raises up your metabolism allowing you to burn more calories while you are doing nothing. Weights are one of the best things to do if you are overweight because there is no weight restriction, there is no impact and it burns fat fat fat. Bands would probably be a good start but I think as you get better with that, you'll need to use some other things including dumbbells.
