If you have no medical limitations and are otherwise healthy, age has little to do with the processes of building muscle or losing body fat; it works the same for everyone, male or female. Get a green light from your doctor to start exercising, then proceed here:

If you don't know how to perform any of the exercises in this program, look them up here to learn how to do them correctly:
GETTING YOUR NUTRITION REQUIREMENTS SORTED OUT:
This thread will explain all the steps to figure your baseline of required protein, fat, carbs, and calories to suit your specific goal:
Get your regular-food nutrition squared-away and your eating on a consistent basis for a couple of months, and then consider addition of possible supplements.
Guessing at portion sizes or relying on food package information will fail you. Buy an inexpensive digital food scale (~$30 at any big-box discount store), weigh your portions, and track them here: http://fitday.com
