Great advice by Swede and Squatter. However, even before using Starting Strength, I'd make sure I could complete some basic body weight exercise goals and have a basic level of conditioning. Can you do 30 solid push-ups? Can you do 50 below parallel body squats? Can you do at least 5 chin-ups or 20 Fat-Man Pull-ups? Can you run (10) 40 yard sprints without completely gassing-out? If not, you can spend the next month getting this stuff sorted out while you investigate weight lifting routines and eating requirements. The fitness and strength gained with be an excellent start to your foundation as you enter the gym.
