    Yes, what Cortelli said, it's easier to maintain muscle than build it, so start with the strength training as soon as possible, you don't need to join a gym, you can look up some bodyweight routines and start there if you want.

    Why is lifting necessary from the start?

    Because muscle burns fat faster, that is why you should start lifting any strength workout! I found strength workout to help me faster than cardio in losing weight.

    I wouldn't say it's necessary, but obviously highly recommended.
    Lifting while losing weight is going to maintain the muscle you have now and affect your body composition when you get to goal.

    Because it feels great!
    Because your body will change in amazing ways! Like going from size 24 to size 12, as pictured.

    You can pull weights making it as your exercise regimen. Exercise to tone up and feel good calorie deficit for weight loss, but It doesnt mean that you dont need any exercises to lose weight, exercise helps controling weight and improve body function at the same time :)

    I see a theme developing here and it is absolutely correct. If you don't start lifting now, your body will burn muscle too, not just fat. Lifting to retain muscle will actually increase the fat burned at the same deficit and greatly improve body composition. In other words, you will end up looking fit instead of just skinny.
