I agree with mixfitness. Eating healthier foods such as, lean proteins, fruits and vegetables combined with any exercise will help you lose weight. However, if you're a beginner or just getting back into exercise, I suggest taking slowly and allowing your body to adjust.
Jumping into a any exercise routine or program that you're not physically able to handle may lead to injury, getting frustrated when you're not able to meet the goals you've set, and may lead you to quit.
Change your eating habits and start slowly with skipping, it'll get your heart rate up, and help shred some unwanted weight.
