First goal should be to learn all the basics about nutrition.
Next to be consistant for a solid month on meals and workouts. (then each month )

As for weight, just starting out lifting you will get heaver before you get lighter. This is because you are useing more muscles and they will start to hold more energy to compensate and get heathier. Then you will stabalize and start to drop weight.
