    Please do not interpret this as me making fun of you - that's not the way I roll. However, the stickies cover the basics very well. If you read them - carefully - you'd have a good starting point already.

    You may need to reassess some things, such as what it is to be 'strong' - benching 100lbs as a female that 'doesn't know a single thing' is awesome, so give yourself a little credit.

    If you can pose some more specific questions I'd be happy to help. Your original post is a big blank canvas and I don't have time to fill the whole thing

    Lift - heavy, full body, 3 x per week. Squat, deadlift, bench, overhead press, chinups/lat pulldowns, row.
    Eat - at your stats, below maintenance, about 500 calories per day. Eat about 125g protein per day. Get plenty of fats (40-60g). Fill in the rest with carbs.
    Cardio - 2-3 times per week on nonlifting days. Around 20-30 min.

    That would be a good start.
    Aim to lose 1-2 lbs per week at first, then closer to 1lb per week as you get closer to goal.
    Be in it for the long haul. It'll take at least a year to get to your ideal weight.
