It is certainly a great start. They questions is how many calories do you eat in a day? No amount of exercise will make you loose weight unless you are consuming less than you are exerting. Eat at least 1200 calories per day so you don't convince your body that you are starving, that will slow your metabolism. Overeating is the worst culprit for weight gain. You can choose any diet, even candy bars (not that that is recommended), but don't consume too many calories. Good luck with the running! Try other light weights for your arms, legs and back, this will increase your metabolism and help you look lean.
