The first thing you should do is resist the urge to view muscle building as bulking and cutting cycles. There are 2 things you need to focus on right now:

1) Train hard. Get stronger on the major compound exercises, and develop a good, consistent habit of getting to the gym.

2) Eating healthy, and properly so you lose weight.

Losing fat while training hard is not going to turn you into some pathetic, tiny shrimp, unless you don't follow the above two suggestions. Focus on the things you can control, and make them happen.

Eat healthy, nutritionally dense foods and aim to lose about 2 pounds per week. If you are very obese, try for more. Make sure you're eating at least 180 grams of protein per day, and taking in at least 30 percent of your calories from fats.

Muscle building takes years. If you spend the next year losing weight and getting stronger, you'll be surprised at how darn good you look.
